NIAGARA COMMUNITY GARDEN NETWORK
About The Niagara Community Garden Network
The Niagara Community Garden Network is a collaborative network of local food security leaders working together to build thriving community gardens. In 2020, the Network found their home at United Way Niagara as part of their commitment to improving food security for all residents. United Way Niagara is providing the backbone support for the Network including support with funding opportunities, marketing and communications and community engagement and development.
Network members include nonprofit agencies, schools and childcare centres, public libraries, churches, neighbourhood groups and community members working together to grow healthy, nutritious food.
We at United Way Niagara and the Community Garden Network believe everyone deserves to easily access nutritious and affordable healthy food. Community garden space, tools, seeds, seedlings, and educational resources are provided in all our associated community gardens for people to grow their own healthy food. Together we offer over 900 garden plots across Niagara which support 3,960 people.
