Gravenhurst Gravenhurst Community GardenCommunity Garden

The Community Garden is a public place to grow your own vegetables if you do not have enough space at home, or as a place to start small and learn about gardening, while meeting other gardeners in your community.

Located on the east side of the Gravenhurst Centennial Centre, the community garden consists of 30 raised box plots, available at three height levels.

A volunteer on-site Gardener Liaison is available to gardeners to provide guidance and advice on how to help their gardens flourish. Information, pictures, garden news, tips and advice is shared on a Facebook page and through email.

The Gravenhurst Community Garden was created in the spring of 2013 in partnership with Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka, Chartwell Gravenhurst Retirement Residence, Gravenhurst Communities in Bloom Committee and YWCA Muskoka.

For a complete list of responsibilites, please review our Garden Responsibilities Guide.
