New Community Gardens

Consultation has concluded

Proposed New Gardens

The City of Guelph is seeking your input for proposed Community Gardens for 2020. Community Gardens are parcels of land used by neighbourhood residents to collectively grow their own vegetables, herbs, pollinator flowers and/or fruit. Community Gardens are vibrant spaces, providing the opportunity for neighbours to meet and work together to improve neighbourhoods, gain a sense of community and connection to the environment.

About Guelph’s Community Gardens

The community garden program encourages volunteers to use City parks as locations for fruit, vegetable and pollinator gardens that benefit the community. Having fruits and vegetables grown just around the corner in your park brings a whole new meaning to local food. Pollinator gardens provide a food source for a variety of wildlife including insects and some bird species. Visit guelph.ca/communitygardens to learn more.

Four new community gardens are in the works. If they’re approved, they’ll be built and ready to plant for Spring 2020. The proposed sites include:

  • St. George’s Park
  • Mollison Park
  • Burns Drive Park
  • Stephanie Drive Park

We want you to tell us:

  • How you feel about the proposed community gardens
  • What you think of the proposed locations
  • What feedback you have about the proposed community gardens
  • How you feel about participating in a garden if approved

Next steps

We will use your feedback to help determine if the proposed garden will benefit each of the four park’s users. Once we’ve made a decision, we will follow up with you to let you know our final results.
