St. James Town Co-op Community Garden
The Community Garden provides a vital meeting space and a green space that serves as a reprieve in our high-rise neighbourhood, and an opportunity for residents to grow and share their own food. During harvesting season, the community garden provides food that is prepared for shared feasts with our co-op members.
The Garden contains 13 plots and is based in the yard of a member-owner’s home in the St. James Town neighbourhood. 10 plots are managed by residents individually and 3 are collectively shared by the co-op.
Help out in the co-op’s community garden by joining garden work days and gaining new skills! Tasks could include: mulching, planting, pathway maintenance, and harvesting.
If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Garden Volunteering” to learn more. Find out when the next volunteer workday is happening below:
