SUDBURY COMMUNITY GARDEN NETWORK
The Greater Sudbury Community Garden Network (CGN) is a volunteer grassroots non for profit organization that is focused on supporting the development and operation of community gardens in the Greater Sudbury region. It partners with a number of other local organizations and groups including the City of Greater Sudbury, Public Health Sudbury & Districts, the Foodshed Project, Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury, Sudbury Shared Harvest, Greater Sudbury Community Action Networks, and other local community groups.
Our mission is to increase opportunities and access to community gardening in the Sudbury District:
- Strengthen and build community by ensuring that local neighbourhoods, particularly underserved areas have opportunities for community, school, and neighborhood gardening
- Develop outreach, education, and skill building programs to cultivate and sustain community-based gardens
- Build support for community-based gardening through networking, advocacy, and activism
Membership is open to any community garden within the boundaries of the City of Greater Sudbury. Community gardens outside of the boundaries can become members as approved by the membership. Each garden is represented by a primary contact or designate who is responsible for coordinating communications to their garden membership and activities relating to CGN projects; and who has one vote for CGN decisions.
We support individual gardens by sharing skills and knowledge, and implementing/running projects and activities that are of interest to our members.
We have monthly business and information sharing meetings other than December, July and August. Anyone interested in community gardening is welcome to attend.
We are the proud recipient of the 2018 Sudbury Community Builders Awards – Environment!
