Community Gardens

Our community garden program is free and a great way to get involved. We have many gardens around the city that always need extra help and are part of a group effort.

Garden locations

The following 14 gardens are located throughout Brantford. Check out our garden locations map to find a community garden near you.

Get involved

Everyone is welcome to join. Please call or email us if you would like to be a part of a garden near you.

How it works

Each garden site has a garden champion. This person works with other volunteers to decide what to plant each year. Everyone works together to care for the produce that is grown. You can harvest what you need once fruits and vegetables are ready to eat. Any leftover produce is donated to a local shelter.

Individual plots are not available for rent however, the City has partnered with the Equal Grounds Community Group (EGCG) who do have additional options.

If you want a new garden in your area and are willing to be a garden champion, please call us or email us.
