Community Gardens & Greenhouse
The Western Environment Centre currently manages three community gardens in western Newfoundland. Each one is run by a group of devoted volunteers and offers plots for rent on an annual basis to members of the public. Now anyone can grow their own fruits, vegetables, and herbs!

Benefits of Community Gardens

Community gardens are an important part of building a more sustainable food system and a stronger, happier community. They are a delicious and healthy source of local, pesticide-free vegetables. Community gardeners have the opportunity to share the joy and satisfaction of growing their own food, learning new skills, meeting new people and getting exercise in fresh air.
