Community Gardening

Nourish is the home of the Peterborough Community Garden Network, a group made up of over 400 gardeners, growers, helpers, garden coordinators and organizations throughout the Peterborough area.

A collaborative between YWCA Peterborough Haliburton, GreenUP, Fleming College, and the Peterborough Public Health, we foster community gardens through education, advocacy, and networking.

Our aim is to increase local food security, environmental integrity, and build community.

Why support community gardens?

We know that community gardens are about much more than just growing food. By increasing the number of local community gardeners & available garden space, families and individuals are able to grow fresh, healthy produce for very little money, green previously underused areas, donate to local food security programs, get to know and interact with their neighbours, and work together to enhance the communities they live in.
