Local Community Gardens

manwithcarrotsThe Halton Food Council defines community gardens as:

"... shared spaces where people gather together to grow fruit, vegetables, and or flowers collectively. Community gardens can help promote food security for participants by increasing physical and economic access to adequate amounts of healthy food. Community gardens provide health, economic, educational, social, and environmental benefits to participants and the community at large."


BurlingtonGreen is proud to have established the first public community garden at Central Park in partnership with the City of Burlington with funding support provided by the Province of Ontario's Healthy Communities Fund.
