A Community Garden is a unique opportunity available to Brampton residents whereby a group of community members will join together to manage and maintain an identified plot of land for the purpose of growing fresh produce and plants. Community Gardens can grow many things including fruit, herbs, and annual flower.
The City facilitates the use of public land for community gardening to help promote healthy eating, positive social interactions, outdoor activity, cross-cultural connections, and to reduce crime and vandalism in our parks.
The Community Gardens program advances the goals
of the Brampton
Grow Green Environmental Master Plan, which cites urban
agriculture as an opportunity for the City.
Did you know? As an extension of the Community
Gardens program, in April 2020, the City launched the Backyard Garden Program,
a new eco-friendly initiative to help support food security in our city, and
encourage residents to get active at home during the COVID-19 emergency. Learn more here.
