Community Gardening

To us, community gardening is an essential component of local food systems. Our gardens create space for building positive relationships within communities, person to person. We believe that gardening together develops people’s connection between community and food. People are brought together by shared interests for creating, cultivating, socializing, and capacity building.


The passion and drive of our garden leaders and volunteers sustains community gardening projects. Every garden is unique and the opportunities are vast including plot adoption, growing for community events and feasts, cultivating food for donation,

greenhouse season extension, development of shared berry, fruit, and nut harvesting, and more. Local Food Manitoulin currently supports community gardening initiatives in

11 communities.
