Canterbury Community Gardens Association

Welcome to the Canterbury Commmunity Gardens Association

The CCGA is a support network for 30 community gardens throughout Canterbury. We are part of a thriving global movement for people to grow their own food together. We support this growing network through newsletters, forums, social gatherings, promotion, research, and this website. 

Community Gardens and their Communities

Community gardens are oases of abundance and beauty where everyone can enjoy fun, friendship, and creativity. Delicious organically-grown fresh food and herbs are rewards for your labour.  

To find your nearest community garden or to join a group, see our Garden Directory. Check our News & Events.
