Welcome to growpeterborough.org: Home of the Peterborough Community Garden Network

Over 400 gardeners, growers, helpers, garden coordinators and organizations throughout the Peterborough area form the Peterborough Community Garden Network (PCGN).  As a collaborative between YWCA,  GreenUP, Fleming College, and the Peterborough County-City Health Unit (PCCHU), we foster community gardens through education, advocacy, and networking.

Our aim:  to support increased local food security, environmental integrity, and community building — that’s how we Cultivate Resilient and Vibrant Communities One Garden at a Time.

We know that community gardens are about much more than just growing food. By increasing the number of local community gardeners & available garden space, families and individuals are able to grow fresh, healthy produce for very little money, green previously underused areas, donate to local food security programs, get to know & interact with their neighbours, and work together to enhance the communities they live in.

Currently, there are 41 community gardens throughout Peterborough City and County.

Join the Community Garden Movement

We seek to connect people with land and create conditions for gardeners and communities to flourish. We envision community gardens as a key tool for food security, ecological integrity and community building — and we want you to get involved. This site contains resources for anyone interested in starting, a community garden, participating in an existing garden, growing food, and contributing to their own and their community’s health and food security.
