VAUGHAN’S COMMUNITY GARDENS

Community gardens on municipal land are places where City of Vaughan residents and employees of Vaughan-based businesses can meet to grow and care for fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and native and ornamental plants.

The City of Vaughan is committed to preserving, protecting and enhancing Vaughan’s natural and built environment through responsible leadership and innovative policies, practices and education, and recognizes that the principles of sustainability must be incorporated into our activities. Community gardens positively contribute to environmental, social and economic sustainability.
