If you’ve peered through the fence at the aftermath of the flooding, you know that our beautiful community garden is almost unrecognizable. Many frames and structures were washed out of place; some were tossed about and upended.
Record rainfall has caused flooding, road and highway closures, and evacuations in southeast Abbotsford. As a result, the Abbotsford Community Garden is under water. These photos were taken on November 16, 2021.

This post helps us understand the garden’s common pathways. Our rules and guidelines keep it a safe and enjoyable place for everyone. Please review them regularly in the Abbotsford Community Garden Agreement Supplement Guide.
Despite a rocky beginning with Covid-19 and the slow start to summer sunshine, our gardens are now thriving. We are a community even though many of us are strangers to each other. Let’s look out for each other and keep the spirit of harmony and respect.
