Pasadena Community Garden
Welcome to the Pasadena Community Garden!
Have a look at what we offer, and learn more about how you can participate.

 
Rent a plot

Each raised bed in the Pasadena Community Garden is 4×10 feet. There are 26 normal plots, four youth plots, and two high beds leased to community members each season. Plots can be rented by a family, couple, individual or group who would like to grow their own organic produce. The garden also has a perennial and annual herb bed and fruit trees, which are shared amongst the gardeners. 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 organizes workshops and garden events throughout the year where all community members are invited. They also make decisions about the garden each year. Gardeners are welcome to join the committee. 

Because of funding obtained, the 2017 season garden fees were waived for all gardeners! For future seasons, the total rental cost for the year will be $30 ($20 plot fee and $10 annual WEC membership fee). Plots must be renewed each year. All available plots are rented for the 2017 season. Please email us at pasadenanlgarden@gmail.com for further details on how to rent a plot next year. You can also check out our Facebook page for more information.


Volunteer at the garden or with the Garden Committee

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 of the Pasadena Community Garden

Our garden was founded by the Western Environment Centre in 2016. Our aim is to raise awareness about sustainable living by providing the citizens of Pasadena with an opportunity to grow their own fresh, organic vegetables. The garden started with 21 plots, and in 2017 another 5 plots were added to accommodate the growing demand. Also new to 2017 is a lending library with a selection of relevant titles to Newfoundland gardening. 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 located at the end of First Avenue in Pasadena.
