The City values community gardens as a means to improving the health and well-being of our neighbourhoods and increasing the sustainability of our beautiful city. An annual fund supports the development of new community gardens and the enhancement/maintenance of existing ones.
The Kingston Community Garden Network was established by the City of Kingston in collaboration with partner groups to support the creation of new community gardens on public or private lands, and to assist with the retention of existing community gardens in the city. Our current network of community gardens includes space for allotment plots (your own personal garden plot), tasting gardens, donation gardens, and training gardens. The network runs a series of gardening workshops and organizes an annual Community Garden Bike Tour.
Join a community garden!
A community garden is a garden run by neighbours. Renting your own plot in a garden requires only a small financial commitment and your time. Join one to teach your kids, grandkids and yourself about food production while getting exercise, socializing and eating great food.
