Carrots grown in a Saint John garden

Community Gardens

One of the joys of a tight-knit community is the growth we all experience—sometimes, quite literally! Community gardens have sprouted up all across Saint John in recent years. The Greater Saint John Area Community Garden (G.S.J.C.G.) began as a volunteer project with about 100 small plots on the former site of the Rockwood Elementary School. Since then, many more neighbourhoods have developed volunteer-led community gardens of their own. 

If you would like to participate, here are the community gardens currently growing in Greater Saint John.

  • Shamrock Park
  • Rainbow Park
  • Forest Hills Baptist Church
