London Community Gardens


London is home to 15 community gardens located on municipally owned land. Over 500 gardeners are active within the gardens, which are located on green space in neighbourhoods across the city.

Community gardens are a great asset to our city! They provide residents with many opportunities including access to healthy and low-cost food, healthy physical activity, skills enhancement, the development of meaningful relationships and the building cross-cultural partnerships.

2017 Garden Season

Plots are rented on a geared-to-income basis.  The rental fee ranges from $15 to $40 for a plot of approximately 150-square feet for the season.  Plots may vary slightly in size.  Gardeners are responsible for opening their garden plots up in the spring and putting their plot “to bed” in the fall.  The City of London Community Gardens Guidelines outlines the gardener’s responsibilities. Please read before you request a garden plot.

The fee structure is based on a total combined household annual income of:

  • Up to $15,000:                $15
  • $16,000 – $20,000:         $25
  • $21,000 – $24,000:         $35
  • Over $24,000:                 $40

Please note:  Gardeners have the option to come back the following season.  If a plot becomes available, it is assigned to the first person on the waiting list. 

If you have any general questions about community garden, email communitygardens@london.ca
