Get involved in community gardens in Okotoks

There are two ways to get involved with a community garden:

  • Join an established garden: Contact any gardens of interest to learn how the group runs the garden. Please note that community gardens are popular and waitlists are common. See below for a list of established community gardens in Okotoks. 

  • Start a new community garden: Work with other residents to start a new community garden through the Neighbourhood Community Garden program.

Okotoks Neighbourhood Community Garden program

The Okotoks Neighbourhood Community Garden program will help residents establish community-led garden projects in Town of Okotoks parks and green spaces. Community gardens contribute to developing a healthier community by helping residents grow food and build social connections in their neighbourhood.

The Neighbourhood Community Garden program is open to all Town of Okotoks residents and is guided by the following principles:

  • Walkable –  used and enjoyed by those who live in the neighbourhood 
  • Welcoming and inclusive – well designed gathering space
  • Community-led – designed for the community, by the community
  • Sustainable – use gardening practices that cause no harm to the earth and its inhabitants
