Community Gardens

Community gardens are an important component in creating a healthy, sustainable city, and the City of Wetaskiwin is planning on expanding this program by digging new plots across the City. 

How to Apply

These plots are available to rent each growing season for a fee of $50 ($30 of which will be refunded at the end of the season if the plot user follows the project’s terms of reference). if you are interested in a community garden plot this year, call 780.361.4436 or email publicworks@wetaskiwin.ca at your earliest convenience and provide the following information:

  • your name
  • phone number
  • home address with postal code.

Garden plots will be assigned as close to your residence as possible to help promote physical distancing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Plots will be ready for planting by May 15, 2020.
