About community gardens
In Guelph, volunteers manage community gardens where neighbours share the space, the work, and the rewards. It’s great for people who don’t have a suitable yard for growing fruit, vegetables, herbs or flowers.
Community gardens are great places to make new friends, or connect with neighbours, and welcome new people to our community. Getting out in the garden can improve our physical and mental health, and make nutritious food more accessible for everyone.
Watch as Two Rivers Huron Street Community Garden rebuilds their compost system
Two Rivers Huron Street Community Garden rebuilt their compost system so that their garden can deal with large volumes of organic green waste. If a compost system is not designed optimally, waste takes a long time to decompose. This is one of the many challenges common to many community gardens that this project aimed to address.
Each community garden is different. Making changes to the design and details of projects that include a compost structure must be assessed separately to understand what will work and be allowed for public spaces.
