The City of Belleville is now accepting applications for this year’s Community Gardens Program.

Established in 2012 by the City of Belleville’s Green Task Force, the Community Gardens Program provides successful applicants with a plot at one of three City-run gardens to make their own during the gardening season. Gardens are currently located at Ponton Park (251 Dundas St. West), West Hill (41 Octavia St.) and Bayview Heights (75 Bay Dr.).

Applications are open until Feb. 25 and garden plots will be awarded through a lottery draw soon after. Please note that previous community gardeners are required to re-apply each year. Applicants must be City of Belleville residents and the waiver form should be read in its entirety before completing an application.

For information and to apply online, visit Belleville.ca/CommunityGardens. Those unable to apply online can email gardens@belleville.ca to get a paper copy or call 613-967-3200, ext. 3219 to apply over the phone.

“Community Gardens is always very popular with the community so we are excited to bring it back for the 12th year now,” said Amanda Azzopardi, Environmental Coordinator. “Not everyone has space or the right environment for a garden, so this program gives residents an area and the resources to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables while being a part of a community of other gardeners.”
