The Grow Garden: A teaching community garden

Building community by mentoring gardeners to grow and share food.

The Grow Garden is a Transition Guelph Urban Food Working Group Project located at Grace Community Church.

What We Need & What You Get

Membership is free, we just ask that you help us grow extra produce for local food pantries.
If you don’t have time to be part of the garden we can always use donations of seeds, plants, and money to help the garden flourish. If you are interested in donating funds to the project, please contact us at

The Impact

The aim of the garden is to help folks learn to garden and grow food for themselves. We would like to give people a chance to understand the importance of a a fresh food diet, while also helping relieve some of the strain on their monthly food budget. The excess food will be donated to a few emergency food shelves in Guelph which also feed those in need during times of need.

The Grow Garden is a stepping stone for learning and self sustainability with an emphasis on community building. Our hope is to bring people together through gardening and to better our community through sharing and positive experience. Keep an eye out for our workshops about gardening and food preserving.

If you can’t support us financially please volunteer or come and garden with us! We all want to make our city the best possible place to live and raise a family. Bring your kids, your grandparents, your life partners or your friends and help build a better Guelph!
