About Us

We are an organization of dedicated volunteers who create and maintain community gardens in New Westminster. Our partners include the City of New Westminster, non-government organizations and local businesses.

Our gardens enhance the urban landscape, support environmental sustainability and provide opportunities for members to enjoy gardening in the city.

Our Mission
To develop community gardens throughout the City of New Westminster and by doing so:

    • Increase the profile of urban agriculture
    • Promote environmentally sustainable gardening practices
    • Increase access to, and the consumption of, locally grown produce
    • Build a sense of community around food, and
    • Decrease the city’s ecological footprint.
