Heights Community Garden
Welcome to the Heights Community Garden!



RENT A PLOT


Each plot in the Heights Community Garden is 5×15 feet. There are currently approximately 16 plots, including four raised beds for those with mobility issues. Plots can be rented by a family, couple, individual or group who would like to grow their own organic produce.

In addition to the plots, the garden has a small compost bin, gardening tools, and a rain barrel for garden use. Each plot owner is responsible for their plot and agrees to keep the plot maintained as to the specifications stated within the annual lease agreement. In addition, each plot owner becomes part of the larger garden community. Plot owners are expected to spend some volunteer time on the general maintenance of the entire community garden.

The garden is run by a volunteer committee that helps organize garden events and make decisions about the garden each year. Gardeners are welcome to join the committee.

FEES

For the 2017 season, the total rental cost for the year is $30 ($20 plot fee and $10 annual WEC membership fee). Plots must be renewed each year. Please contact us for a lease agreement form and further details on how to rent a plot.


VOLUNTEER


There are many volunteer opportunities in the community garden ranging from construction, weeding, maintenance, organizing garden events or whatever the season may require at the time. Even if you don’t have a plot in the garden, you can help out at the garden as a volunteer. Simply contact us and we’ll let you know how you can help.


HISTORY


The Heights Community Garden was founded by the local organization Mental Wealth in 2013. Their aim was to raise awareness about sustainable living by providing the citizens of Corner Brook with an opportunity to grow their own fresh, organic vegetables.

In 2017, the Western Environment Centre took over management of the garden. Our gardeners are a diverse mix of families, students, retirees, professionals, groups of friends, and individuals who all work together to make the garden a success!


LOCATION


Our current garden site is open to the public (during the spring, summer, and fall) and is on the lower end of Batstone's Road in the Brandon Municipal Playground.​
