ABOUT US

Niagara Community Garden Network is a collaborative network of local food security leaders working together to build thriving community gardens.

We believe growing and sharing food can transform communities and address environmental, health and social issues.  We seek to empower people of all ages to learn to grow their own food. 

We offer our communities garden space, tools, seeds, seedlings, and educational resources for people to grow their own healthy food. 

We believe everyone deserves to easily access nutritious and affordable healthy food.

Community Gardens

Gardens are important community hubs where people grow food but also learn, experiment, share, connect and develop self-sufficiency. Many gardeners grow food not only for themselves and their families, but also give back by donating excess produce to local food banks and programs to help those in need.

Our Members

Our members include nonprofit agencies, schools and childcare centres, public libraries, churches, neighbourhood groups and community members working together to grow healthy, nutritious food. Together we offer over 600 garden plots across Niagara.
