Community Gardens

Project SHARE coordinates 3 community garden sites in Niagara Falls where fresh, organic produce is grown to help eliminate hunger. You can sign up for a plot or volunteer to tend plots that grow food for our emergency food room. Community gardens are pieces of land where people get together to grow food, share ideas, resources and experiences while growing food. Our community gardens are located at:

  • Our Lady of the Scapular Parish, 6557 Thorold Stone Road, Niagara Falls, ON L2J 1B2
  • The Gate Alliance Church, 6009 Valley Way, Niagara Falls, ON L2E 1X9
  • Westlane Secondary School, 5960 Pitton Rd, Niagara Falls, ON L2H 1T5

Yearly the gardens produce over 5,000 pounds of emergency food that is distributed through Project SHARE’s emergency food program. Volunteers donate their time and experience to mentor new gardeners on how to grow healthy, organic foods without using any pesticides.

3 to 4 workshops are offered throughout the garden season to educate the gardeners on Square Foot Gardening, Companion Gardening and how to preserve their harvest through canning and preserving methods. The garden always needs lots of love and care from volunteers who can help weed, water and harvest the produce. Come on out and be part of our GROWING Team!
