|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||Participants can sign up for a plot or volunteer at one of 3 Community and Allotment gardens in Niagara Falls. Community Gardens are pieces of land where people get together to grow food.
* Our Lady of the Scapular Parish, 6557 Thorold Stone Road, Niagara Falls, ON L2J 1B2
* The Gate Alliance Church, 6009 Valley Way, Niagara Falls, ON L2E 1X9
* Westlane Secondary School, 5960 Pitton Rd, Niagara Falls, ON L2H 1T5
Yearly, the gardens produce over 4,000 pounds of emergency food that is distributed through Project SHARE’s Food Bank. Volunteers donate their time and experience to mentor new gardeners on how to grow healthy, organic foods without using any pesticides.
3 to 4 workshops are offered throughout the garden season to educate the gardeners on Square Foot Gardening, Companion Gardening and how to preserve their harvest through canning and drying methods.
