Our nine community gardens are scheduled to reopen on May 22nd, 2020 to registered garden members only. We have worked closely with our partners to develop a safety protocol and opening plan. Some of these guidelines include increased supervision, scheduled access, limit to one person per plot at a time, eliminating shared tools, suspension of teaching and group programs and provision of hand washing stations.
Community gardens play a vital role in building sustainable local food systems, providing access to fresh, healthy and nutritious food, and creating resilient community spaces.
Our Community Gardens program continues to build on the successful pilot partnership that we developed with the City of Mississauga and Evergreen to create the first community garden on public land in Mississauga in 2006.
The Ecosource Community Gardens Program connects residents in Mississauga neighbourhoods with gardening spaces that encourage active, healthy living and help green the city. This program is generously supported by the City of Mississauga.
Together, we’ve paved the way to set up public community gardens at multiple city parks. Click the thumbnails below to learn more about each garden, or scroll to the bottom of this page to join the wait list for garden membership.
Ecosource is working to increase the accessibility of its gardens and has new accessible beds in 8 locations across the City of Mississauga. Click here to learn more and sign up.
