Community Gardens

There are two Community Garden locations within the city. These gardens aim to promote local, healthy eating, intergenerational learning and community development. Gardeners are encouraged to work together and support each other to make their gardens a success.

At the end of the season, any unclaimed produce is donated to local non-profit organizations.

Community Garden COVID-19 Guidelines

Community gardens are vital in addressing food scarcity, creating community and building connections between residents. In order to ensure the health and safety of our gardeners during the COVID-19 pandemic the City of Fort Saskatchewan asks that all gardeners adhere to the following guidelines for the 2020 season.

  1. There may only be a maximum of 15 gardeners at the Clover Park location and 7 gardeners at the Jubilee Park location at any time. If you arrive at either location and there are already the maximum number of people present you will need to leave and return at a different time.
  2. All gardeners must ensure that they are practicing 2 meter physical distancing at all times.
  3. Gardeners are required to wash hands with enviro friendly soap and water before entering and after leaving the garden site.
  4. Gardeners must bring their own tools/equipment, watering cans, gardening gloves, and disinfecting products and must take these items with them when they leave.
    • We will not be allowing the use of communal tools at each site. If you have extenuating circumstances that limit you from bringing your own equipment, please connect with me. Possible solutions may include assigning some of the communal equipment to a specific gardener over the summer as supplies allow.
  5. If you are using the water cisterns at the garden and need to turn the taps these taps need to be washed with soap and water before and after you touch them.
  6. Where garbage receptacles are not located within the garden, gardeners must take their trash with them and deposit it in an appropriate garbage receptacle.
  7. Time in the garden is for gardening only and any social activities are not permitted at this time.
  8. Only service animals can be permitted on site, animals must be leashed, wearing service vest/identification, and not in direct contact with edibles. It is recommended to wash hands before and after interacting with pets.
