About the Community Gardens

One plot available for 2024!

The Waskasoo Community Gardens are located in the Waskasoo Playground at 4409 58th Street. We have 10 garden plots, two perennial beds and a fruit and berry orchard.


While the ten garden plots are planted and harvested by private families, the orchard and perennial beds are open to the public to enjoy. In the orchard you will find apples, cherries, chokeberries, and haskaps and in the perennial beds you can help yourself to rhubarb, herbs, and cut flowers. 

We are pleased to announce that the Waskasoo Community Gardens was deemed one of the five most active gardens in the City and has been awarded a Big Yellow Bag of compost from Blue Grass Garden Centre! All ten gardeners are welcome to use the compost as they ready their plots for planting. 


Looking for a garden bed? Check back here in early April to see whether we have any open plots. If there are plots available, see below to register.

Interested in volunteering with us? We are always looking for people to tend and water the public spaces. Email if you're interested.
