The Toronto Community Garden Network (TCGN) is made up of interested and energetic individuals and organizations from across the GTA. They are committed to greening and organic gardening practices across the City of Toronto and to make community gardening an integral part of city life.
The community gardens in Toronto are situated on a range of properties, including city parks, rooftops, senior citizens' residences, school properties, churches, community & health centres, and many more places.
The Toronto Community Garden Network is working to encourage a healthy Community Gardening movement in the City of Toronto, supporting and linking Community Gardeners.
Our Vision of Diversity
The Toronto Community Garden Network is committed to diversity as a central and fundamental aspect of our work. Diversity is essential to the strength and health of communities. It is also essential to the strength and health of gardens, whether they be community gardens or otherwise.
The TCGN is open and welcoming to people of all beliefs, experiences, and backgrounds. We are a multicultural group of people with the ethnic and lifestyle diversity that reflects the City of Toronto.
To help Community Gardens in the City we have set up our website to include the tools you need:

In the Garden Shed: Tools to help you. Design of a compost bin, Community Garden Hand Book, and links to important gardening information.
Job Posting: Looking for a environmentally friendly Job? Community oriented work? Or perhaps you want to employ someone, here is where it's at!
if you have something to Share, Trade or Donate, or if you really need some garden related item, that you would like posted onto the website please contact mail@tcgn, or you can join the Public Google Discussion Email List for a quick response.
This website is for general information, and for the networking use of community gardeners in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We encourage both a co-operative approach to gardening, and the practices of organic growing methods.
