The community garden concept is straightforward. Provide a small patch of fertile soil and put it in the hands of someone who wants to garden. Since 2008, the Abbotsford Community Garden has been providing small growing spaces for its members. Currently, about 150 plots are being used for organic gardening by local residents. Located on City of Abbotsford property, this community garden is an initiative developed and run entirely by volunteers.

The objective of the Abbotsford Community Garden is to create space for people to learn about and participate in  growing some of their own food organically – planning, planting, tending and ultimately reaping the benefits of their labour. This community garden offers a unique opportunity for a wide cross-section of  Abbbotsford residents  to come together and garden as neighbours. People of every age, ethnic background and gardening experience are participating.
