Community Garden

Located at 448 McGee Street, WCWRC’s garden is comprised of 12 raised beds. Using a model of volunteer-based community engagement, we grow and harvest fresh vegetables and fruits.

The West Central neighbourhood struggles with access to grocery retailers since many are beyond walking distance and are inaccessible for many of our community members. The Community Garden formed out of an identified need for community access to fresh produce. Produce from our garden is shared with our community volunteers and is also used in our kitchen to make meals for the community.

The community garden is also a space for community to gather and participate in outdoor activities, including ceremonies and Indigenous cultural programming, gardening & nature programming, and community events, such as summer Tea & Bannock and BBQ’s.


Thank you, Heirloom Seeds Canada for the donation of seeds for our garden, and to the following farms for their donation of seedlings:

It was fun to be with women where there was a spirit of shared generosity and humour…in terms of kindness, support, acceptance, respect and care.
