Our Community Gardens Program is a partnership between Ecosource and the City of Mississauga, a collaboration that began in 2006 with the opening of the first community garden in a public park in Mississauga. Each year staff from Ecosource and the City’s Parks, Forestry and Environment Division work closely together to manage the City’s growing community garden network. The program connects residents in Mississauga neighbourhoods with gardening spaces that encourage active, healthy living and help green the city in support of Mississauga’s Climate Change Action Plan.
Our Community Gardens Program is generously supported by the City of Mississauga and Ecosource is a proud member of the City of Mississauga’s Community Group Registry Program.
