The idea of a community garden in Central Saanich has been gathering interest from the community since October of 2019. A group of dedicated community members have been working to realize this idea. Join our newsletter list today to stay up to date, and contact us if you want to get involved!
We envision a vibrant, nurturing, multigenerational, and inclusive group of people coming together to cultivate an affordable, barrier-free, pleasurable, healthy, accessible and food secure community.
With the help of community partnerships, we will strive to educate and empower people to successfully grow their own food and foster relationships within our community. We aim to create a space that has both communal growing spaces and individual plots with some space dedicated to charitable donations.
We aim to foster community through growing food year-round. We are dedicated to incorporating nature and nurturing into the garden with an emphasis on sustainability by using low impact environmental practices.
If you are interested in joining our effort to create a community garden in Central Saanich, contact us! We are always looking for extra hands to help out. Anybody is welcome, whether you are good with numbers, design, social media, or green thumbs! It is time to share the joy of creating and implementing a long-lived organization and space to ensure Food Sovereignty and Food Security for our residents. We invite members & volunteers to join our initiative.
