The Malton Community Garden was created with support from Sobeys and the Earth Day Canada Community Environment Fund, and had its grand opening in June 2010.
Located adjacent to the Malton Community Centre, in Elmcreek Park, this garden encourages Malton residents to literally put roots down in growing their community and provides a welcoming space to share food, cultures, and build friendships. The garden contains 11 resident’s plots and 36 mini learning plots producing food for the Mt. Zion food bank. Many local groups, businesses, and organizations are coming together to grow food in communal plots with the intention of sharing the harvest with the community. We are especially appreciative of the support of local UPS employees helping out at the garden and fundraising to support much needed site improvements!
In 2011, the Malton Community Garden received an Ontario Heritage Trust Award for Community Stewardship. This garden incorporates lots of public art into the growing space through the creation of an artist-led mural painting with young people and community members on the garden shed.
