Community Orchard & Edible Forest
Interested in starting a community orchard on municipal property in your neighbourhood?
The City will help determine whether the site you've selected is appropriate to plant for food production.
About the Policy
The City recognizes that community-led planting, management and harvesting of fruit trees, and nut trees and/or shrubs:
- promotes community development,
- increases opportunities for recreation, socialization and
- contributes to the City's tree canopy and urban forest.
The Community Orchard and Edible Forest Policy establishes a framework for community-led planting, management and harvesting of fruit trees, nut trees and/or shrubs on City-owned lands. This policy is to be used in conjunction with the Community Garden Development and Operations policy.
