Community Garden

The Sutherland Forest Grove Community Garden rents individual plots to gardeners in the community who may not have space for their own garden. Gardeners maintain their own plots and have ownership of what they grow.

We also maintain several community or “pick-me” plots (see diagram below) for those in the neighbourhood who are not gardeners with the community garden.

 

We are currently at capacity, however if you live in the Sutherland or Forest Grove neighbourhoods and are interested in a community garden plot, please contact the Garden at garden@sutherlandforestgrove.ca or Stephan Simon at 306-373-2421 to be added to our wait list.

 

If you do not live in Sutherland or Forest Grove, please contact CHEP Good Food, who can help locate a garden near you.

Registration for returning gardeners will open soon. Plots are not allocated until registration and payment is received.
