Benefit of the Abbotsford Community Garden

With the recently adopted Allocation Policy Framework for use of City-owned lands, the Abbotsford Community Garden has been asked to indicate how our community garden activities align with the twenty-two identified community and individual benefits of the City of Abbotsford’s Parks, Recreation and Culture. 

Restoration Is Under Way

In November 2021, serious widespread flooding put our community garden under deep water for many days. Thankfully, after the City of Abbotsford ran soil sample tests and conduct risk hazard assessments, we have been informed the soil is safe to grow food. Members now have access to the garden under a temporary license with the City. Until further notice, the community garden remains closed to non-members.

In more normal times, each fall members are given the opportunity to renew their registration for the next season. Any plots not claimed at the end of the year become available to new community gardeners the following spring. Registration dates are announced on this page.

There will be no new gardener registration in 2022 due to the damage caused by the floods.

This community garden is managed entirely by volunteers. Your patience and kindness are always appreciated.
