Community Gardens

COVID-19 Update

The gardens are open to approved renters.

Keeping the town healthy and safe is the town’s priority. Staff have consulted with Halton Region Public Health to evaluate how and when to open the allotment gardens, and have provided protocols on operating requirements, such as limiting access to maintain physical distancing, implementing changes to operating hours, and cleaning and disinfecting common equipment to ensure public safety.
