Vancouver has over 110 community gardens in city parks, in schoolyards, and on private property. There's even a community garden at City Hall.
Community gardens are operated by local community groups.
To join a community garden and request a garden plot, search the community garden map or open data set below, and contact the community garden directly.
Garden plots are in demand so you may need to be on a waitlist. Waitlists are managed by each community garden.
The Vancouver Park Board, in partnership with St. Judes Anglican Home, is considering developing a community garden at Braemar Park.
