Gardens help grow healthy communities, so we've partnered with the Central Okanagan Community Gardens Society to provide community gardens within Kelowna. Community gardening is an activity for all ages and abilities. We support community gardening by providing land, while the Central Okanagan Community Gardens society coordinates the gardeners and plots.  

You can rent a community garden plot for $40 per season (November to October). To rent a plot in an existing community garden or develop another community garden in your area, visit the Central Okanagan Community Gardens website.
