Obtain a Site
Community gardens can exist on public or private land. The
City of Calgary Parks department strongly recommends they be
built on land that is already leased and insured by the local
community association. In order of desirability, potential sites
for your community garden include:
- Public land owned by City of Calgary Parks and leased to a
- Private land owned by a local church or other faith-based
organization, a school board, condo association, non-profit
society, business or individual philanthropist.
- An existing City of Calgary park.
Obtaining your site starts with identifying
potential sites and then leasing and
insuring the site.
