A community garden needs one special ingredient to make it great – community! Everybody in the neighbourhood has something valuable to contribute to this garden and the MCCG is encouraging all community members to be a part of it. Come to a meeting (held monthly, on the first Monday of every month) and help plan the vision of the garden – help to make it a special place for you.

Sponsor or donate to the MCCG!
The garden operates as a cooperative. Are there any other specialty skills or experience that you can offer to the group? i.e. gardening, legal, grants writing, fundraising, public relations, facilitation, trades skills.
Are you able to sponsor, donate money or tools, or provide a service/product to the growth of the garden?
If you’re a local business or tradesperson who wants to support the MCCG, sponsoring the garden is a great way to get behind a great long-term community project that will thrive for many years to come.
And of course, we welcome donations of gardening tools, seedlings, soil, and any other useful bits and pieces that gardeners could use to plant, dig, store, and grow!
