Welcome to the Gorge Park Community Gardens
The Gardens' First Summer - 2015
Visitors to the park comment on the beauty that has been created and the increased sense of community the Gardens has added to the neighbourhood.
The Gardens are 100% volunteer run. All members participate in the running of the Gardens in some way. Come join us!
Gorge Park Community Gardens (GPCG) is located in a beautiful public park in Saanich, BC.
In January of 2015 we started building our first vegetable beds - we've come a long way since!
Within the rustic spit-rail fence surrounding the site you’ll find a number of different types of spaces.
allotment beds rented by members to grow their own food
communal growing areas brimming with herbs, fruit, and vegetables for use by garden members, people passing by and neighbourhood food programs
places for people to gather and visit
areas designed specifically with pollinators in mind, including mason bee houses
water conservation features such as berms, swales and a rain garden
Within the Gardens we host Plant Sales, Fall Fests, Gardeners' Gatherings, Educational Workshops and more.
GPCG members are a mix of both allotment holders and those without allotments who care for the communal areas only. Our gardeners, young and older, come from nearby condos, houses, and apartments along Gorge Road and from neighbourhoods throughout Greater Victoria.
