Sherbrooke Community Pop-Up Garden

Information about Edmonton's Pop-up Community Gardens program.

The Pop-Up Community Garden program helps to increase Edmontonians’ access to fresh food while providing opportunities for outdoor recreation, community involvement and wellness. 

The temporary gardens feature raised planter beds and are distributed across the city, primarily on community league licensed land or city owned land. The planters are provided with the intent of growing food in spaces that do not currently feature a Community Garden, in existing Community Gardens that have wait lists or in partnership with Community Leagues who are considering beginning the process of establishing their own Community Garden.

During the pilot phase, which ran from 2020-2023, 162 applications were received, with 83 Pop-Up gardens awarded and 1102 planter boxes distributed! Visit Urban Gardening Initiatives to learn more about City-led projects.
