Welcome to the Dalhousie Community Garden and Food Forest


Our vision for the East Dalhousie Community Gardens and Food Forest is an interactive, accessible and beautiful communal space for Dalhousie residents to gather and grow together. Developing a food forest and community garden beds fills a void within Dalhousie community: a destination that encourages residents to spend time outside, in a space that is cared for and loved by residents themselves. It gives a sense of ownership to the area, encouraging people to see themselves as stewards of communal space in addition to their own. We believe that a communal forest will foster a sense of pride in our community, while reigniting a connection to the natural world and how we as urban dwellers can live in harmony with nature within our vibrant city. As the pressure to recognize, embrace, and implement sustainable living increases, a public space that demonstrates sustainable and ecologically healing gardening and growing practices is vitally important.

We believe that Dalhousie residents have both the desire and energy to create this community space. Our initial survey of the residents through our community social media groups and digest magazine is overwhelmingly positive feedback.
