Flowers in a community garden

Join a community garden in your neighbourhood

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. 

Braemar Park

The Vancouver Park Board, in partnership with St. Judes Anglican Home, is considering developing a community garden at Braemar Park.
