Crescent Park Community Garden
Situated on one acre of land, the garden consists of fifty-six plots, ten of which are accessible. The remainder of the site is in the process of being rehabilitated through the planting of native trees and shrubs, the installation of birdhouses, and the laying of a crushed gravel trail around the perimeter of the site. Alexandra Neighbourhood House established the garden in 2016, and oversees the project on behalf of a volunteer governance committee. For more information or for plot inquiries, call 604-535-0015 (extension 236) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Plot Community Sharing Garden
“THE PLOT” is a non profit, community run and supported project; a collectively-tended, interactive, and functional land art piece for the community. This single large garden provides opportunities for participation, inspiration, education, and food for the surrounding community. It was initiated in 2016 by the The People’s Food Security Bureau. The PFSB was formed in 2015, by artists Cora and Don Li-Leger, to further the mission of integrating art and life through food. The idea was to create a garden based on artistic expression that would generate a sense of community and at the same time provide free food for the Food Banks and others in the community. At the end of the first growing season the PLOT was turned over to the Friends of the PLOT.
The Plot is located at 71st avenue and 137A street, behind the Newton Arena. For more information, visit www.theplot.ca.
