Community Gardens

Vegetable Plots

The Stratford Community Gardens first opened on Bunbury Road in 2013 thanks to a partnership between the Town of Stratford and the Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group and funding from Wal-Mart Evergreen Fund.  

We now run at full capacity each year, but don’t be discouraged! We keep a waiting list for those that are interested in having a plot and do our best to accommodate anyone who wants to garden. Email us at or call 902-367-3605 if you are interested in renting a plot.

No personal equipment or background knowledge of gardening is required to rent a plot.  All of the tools you will need (water, wheelbarrow, rake, hand tools, etc.) are provided with your registration and available to you at the Community Gardens.

The season runs from May 15th to October 31st each year. Unallocated plots are given to new gardeners beginning in February.

There are a total of 93 various-sized plots available to residents and community organizations. The sizes are as follows:
