Allotment gardens & Community gardens
The City of Winnipeg operates allotment gardens at various locations throughout the City.
Community Gardens are run by community groups and organizations.
City allotment plots will be available to the public on April 6th at 9:00 a.m.
In accordance with COVID-19 protocols, there are no in-person appointments. Please call 204-832-5865 to rent your allotment.
City allotment plots are sized and spaced to accommodate COVID-19 physical distancing directives, please follow the guidelines to ensure your own and others’ safety.
Individual garden plots are available for rent through the Community Garden Information Centre. Individuals are responsible for planting and maintaining their own plot. Garden plots are rented from May to October and plot rentals may be renewed each year. The City of Winnipeg has a limited number of garden plots available for rent to the general public.
Community gardens can transform empty lots into green, living spaces. Neighbourhoods often experience a positive environmental, economic, and social impact from their community gardens. The community group handles all aspects of garden membership, maintenance and programming. Groups enter into a lease agreement with the City of Winnipeg.
The benefits of community gardens include:
- Provide opportunities for individuals and community groups to grow gardens
- Improve our connection to the sources of food
- Strengthen our neighbourhood connection
- Add to the enjoyment of our green space
- Promote an awareness of the environment
