Description:

The Springbank Community Gardens are a space for those interested in growing their own fresh organic produce. It is a lovely place if you like being outdoors and enjoy a sense of community. We are growing a bustling, multicultural, multigenerational community which shares knowledge and builds relationships – all in the name of education and responsible land stewardship.

The benefits of community gardening are many and varied, including everything from better health to strong community building. Growing your own food gives you access to a variety of fresh produce that supports nutritional health and exercise that helps promote healthy living. The food isn’t the only thing that grows at the gardens – gardeners get to know one another and often friendships flourish. There are also benefits to the environment as rainwater is filtered through gardens, and growing food locally means long transportation routes aren’t necessary.

Please note the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers are prohibited as rare is committed to organic agriculture methods. The Springbank Community Gardens are open April 15 to November 15, from dawn till dusk. Compost, water, mulch, hand tools and garden hoses are supplied while you provide the time and the energy!
