Across Halifax, gardens are offering spaces for communities to grow and connect.

Community Gardens offer diverse platforms for learning and sharing skills. Opportunities for learning present themselves through programs like Farmer Training at Common Roots Urban Farm and Spryfield Urban Farm or Youth Entrepreneurship at Hope Blooms. Community Gardens also contribute to well-being; offering a place for Fellowship and Connectedness and granting Food Security like at the HUGS Garden. See the Garden Stories below to read more. These stories celebrate three areas of community gardening success in Halifax, but there are so many more that can be presented here.
