Our mission is to build community and improve local food security by supporting, expanding and enhancing community gardening across Niagara.
We believe growing and sharing food can transform communities and address environmental, health and social issues.
There are many ways to garden in community. We link a diverse range of different types of community gardens across Niagara, including allotment gardens, community sharing gardens, urban farms, therapeutic, educational, vocational and school gardens.
Our membership includes community gardeners, supportive volunteers, garden coordinators and sponsoring organizations, donors and other community allies. This includes community members, neighbourhood groups, nonprofit agencies, schools and childcare centres, public libraries and faith-based groups, all working together to support one another and share resources to empower people of all ages to better be able to grow healthy, nutritious food.
