Let's get growing.

Community Gardens

A community garden is a group of people that get together to plant and harvest a garden. Some gardens have a communal plot where everybody shares the land, whereas others allocate individual plots to gardeners to plant on their own. Join us on a journey towards healthy food and a wealth of community. Find a garden near you with our map .


Public Health Update for 2021

As the 2021 gardening season is approaching, please be reminded about Waterloo Region’s COVID-19 Guidelines for Community Gardens (the Guidelines). The Guidelines can be found here: https://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/health-and-wellness/resources/Documents/COVID-19-Guidelines-for-Community-Gardens.pdf.

Note that a few changes have been made to the Guidelines for the 2021 season to align with relevant requirements within the Reopening Ontario (A Flexible Response to COVID-19) Act, 2020.

Similar to the 2020 season, the Guidelines require appropriate signage at the gardens to remind individuals of the policies and procedures during COVID-19. Garden sites will be responsible for supplying signage for the 2021 season. There is a very limited number of leftover signs from the 2020 season, available on a first come, first serve basis.

See the links below to download and print the signs from 2020 season:
