COMMUNITY GARDEN

Our Community Garden has 45 rental plots, that are 4’x12′ or 4’x16′, and 4 table top accessibility beds. Members of the community can come to meet together and share their desire to grow healthy food and flowers, learn together and enjoy spending time in the garden. We are just minutes from the town of Waterdown, yet surrounded by beautiful farmland and apple orchards.

Our Mission

Flamborough Baptist Community Garden will provide space for the community to garden together within the Flamborough area. We will create a shared vision to work together and cultivate a place for individuals, families and friends to learn and experience the rewards of gardening – “to grow food, grow minds and grow community.”
