Community gardens

Established in 1994, the longest running program of the CDC Quinte, Community Gardens are a place where participants can enjoy the benefits of growing their own fruits and vegetables. Garden plots are available for anyone who would like to participate. This is popular with families and individuals attempting to stretch their food dollars, apartment dwellers, or anyone who lacks the space to be a successful backyard gardener.  Community gardeners tell us that they like the spirit of cooperation, the opportunity to learn from others about garden techniques, and the health benefits and for exercise in a friendly, convenient social setting.

What is the Community Gardens?
The Community Garden Program offers garden plots to anyone who can benefit by growing their own fresh fruits and vegetables. This is popular with families attempting to stretch their food dollars and with seniors and/or apartment dwellers who lack the space to be successful backyard gardeners.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost to participate.
Can anyone participate?
Yes!  We welcome anyone to register for a garden plot. Our space is limited, however, so it is on a first come, first served basis.
