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.
In 2017 the gardens were expanded to include an additional 30 plots
In 2021 the Bunbury gardens were further expanded to include 16 additional plots and in 2022 a satellite garden in Stonington was created to include 6 plots. These expansions were funded by the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 902-367-3605 if you are interested.
No knowledge or equipment 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. Plots are allocated 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:
6 x 12 feet
4 x 12 feet raised beds
10 x 17 feet
10 x 12 feet with attached kid plot
10 x 40 feet
