2021 Greener Greenspace Profile
Urban Harvest Circle Community Garden
Located in a dense neighbourhood in Guelph, ON, the Urban Harvest Circle Community Garden is a volunteer-led garden that uses organic methods to grow fresh food and support pollinators.
Design and Process
The garden is adjacent to a playground and dog park and many neighbours come over to the garden to see what is happening and to learn about gardening methods. The garden is maintained by a group of dedicated garden volunteers who share the tasks to maintain the garden as an active and productive community space.
Guelph is a Bee City and there is a large community garden network that meets in person and online to share organic growing practices and methods.
Greener Greenspaces is a recognition program for sites from across Canada that exemplify greener greenspace stewardship. The aim of the program is to showcase examples of ecologically-focused land care as a means to inspire others and to further the movement across Canada.
