The Community Garden Consultation has concluded. Thank you for participating. The City will share the outcome and more information about upcoming plans for new community gardens in the coming months. 

Feedback Welcomed On Proposed Community Gardens

The City of Barrie, in partnership with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and Urban Pantry, is exploring three new locations for community gardens in Barrie’s parks. In accordance with the Community Garden Policy, staff will consult with Barrie residents to consider feedback prior to applying for approvals of new garden locations.

Residents have the opportunity to view the concept designs of each of the proposed locations, and provide feedback by attending virtual public presentations and completing the Community Garden survey up until Thursday, February 25.

As part of this consultation process, it’s being proposed that the Sunnidale Community Garden be relocated to Riverwood Park instead. The City is considering the closure of the Sunnidale Community Garden primarily for the lack of water supply at that location.

A Community Garden is a place to grow food and ornamental plants, be physically active, strengthen communities, contribute to self-reliance of the people who work in them, and improve the environment. The Community Garden Program currently regulates the operation of four community gardens in Barrie. To learn more about Barrie's community gardens, visit barrie.ca/communitygardens.

The purpose of the survey and consultation is to support design, decision making and staff recommendations, as well as provide guidance on future designs based on gardener demand and preferences.
