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 garden operatorcommunity garden directly.

Garden plots are in demand so you may need to be on a waitlist. Waitlists are managed by each community garden.
