Ignatius Farm has a community garden plot just for you! Perhaps you used to garden but no longer have the growing space? Did you garden alongside your (grand) parents when you were a child and want to try gardening on your own. Maybe you’ve never gardened before but are hoping to get started!
No matter your skill level or experience, the Ignatius Farm Community Gardens are a welcoming and beautiful place to garden, be a part of your neighbourhood farm, and build a wonderful sense of community.
