Equal Ground Community Gardens Welcomes You
Hope Is Where the Heart Is
Who We Are
Equal Grounds Community Gardens has been initiating community gardens throughout Brantford since 2009. We provide assistance and support to a vast network of community garden projects. We currently support and maintain a total of 33 active community gardens throughout the city including 12 garden sites found in neighbourhood parks and public spaces.
Equal Grounds Community Gardens increased our capacity in March 2015 by the merger of two existing groups with a similar goal of creating community gardens in our city. We promote local initiatives that recognize the importance, desire and need for residents to grow their own food, even in urban settings.
These gardens, maintained fully by community residents and volunteers, provide places for growing local, healthy and nutritious fruits and vegetables here in our city and neighbourhood parks.
We have options for everyone
