Community Garden program

Group of gardeners in community garden

Get involved

Strathcona County is partnering with residents, community groups and local non-profits to help support a vision for new and established community gardens in our parks and green spaces. 

The Community Garden Program is open to all Strathcona County residents, and it is guided by the following principles:

  • Walkable –  used and enjoyed by those who live in the community
  • Inclusive – welcoming and gathering space open to everyone
  • Community-led – designed for the community, by the community

There are two ways you can get involved with the program:

  • Join an established garden – visit the garden of your choice, and take time to talk with garden members at their site to learn how the group runs the garden. Please note that community gardens are popular and waitlists are common.
  • Start a new community garden – work together with other residents to start a new community garden. To be successful, community gardens need people power, purpose and a plan. Note that only a few garden sites can be approved and built each year. Our staff will guide you through the planning and application process so you can start growing your idea.

To get involved contact us by phone or make a request through County Connect.
