Community gardens

Planting a community garden

Community gardens can transform empty lots into green, living spaces. Neighbourhoods often experience a positive environmental, economic, and social impact from their community gardens. The community group handles all aspects of garden membership, maintenance and programming. Groups enter into a lease agreement with the City of Winnipeg.

The benefits of community gardens include:

  • Provide opportunities for individuals and community groups to grow gardens
  • Improve our connection to the sources of food
  • Strengthen our neighbourhood connection
  • Add to the enjoyment of our green space
  • Promote an awareness of the environment
