What is the community garden?
The Wildwood Community Garden exists to provide a welcoming space for the residents of Wildwood to garden together – to create a shared vision, to work collaboratively, and to cultivate a place for individuals, families and friends to learn about and to experience the rewards of gardening and community.
Our vision is to foster an environment of beauty and community, where people of all ages can share in the great contentment of gardening. We will follow the permaculture ethics of care of the earth, care of people, and fair share. It’s a place for learning healthy, sustainable ways of producing food and flowers in cooperation with others. This garden is an asset to the community.
We bring this vision to life by providing a community resource that allows neighbours to work together in growing flowers, herbs and produce in the community garden. In addition, we host gardening workshops, nature walks and the popular Harvest Festival.

Virtual Harvest Festival
In addition, the Gardening Team have taken the difficult decision to not hold the annual Harvest Festival at the community hall this year. Instead, residents are encouraged to participate in a virtual Harvest Festival by supporting vendors online:
Many of our vendors have set up social distanced pick up options for their produce and goods! It’s important to support our local businesses during these times, and we know that these folks would certainly appreciate your support.
