Wasaga Beach Community Garden

Community gardens are places where people come together to grow fresh food, to learn, relax and make new friends. Community gardeners know that sharing land to grow food and other plants builds a sense of place and community.


The benefits of the community garden include

  • easy access to fresh, nutritious food

  • a sense of achievement that comes through growing some of your own food needs

  • making friends with people in the neighbourhood learning the skills of gardening, shared decision making and cooperation, all of which are necessary to successful community gardens

  • healthy outdoor exercise

  • participating in a constructive and productive recreational activity

  • Improving the local environment.


The community garden

Located at the corner of River Road West and Fernbrook Drive, the garden consists of 54 individual plots planted by multiple community organizations and residents. Many of the gardeners are donating all of the produce from their plots to the local food bank in Wasaga Beach.

In addition there are 7 plots being grown by the YMCA and the South Georgian Bay Community Health Center for food skills programming and youth engagement.

The community garden has been approved as a two year pilot project for the Town of Wasaga Beach.
