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.

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