EcoGarden

Community EcoGarden

As our ability to grow food increases, our dependency on imported food decreases. Gardening becomes a mechanism by which our individual and community food security and emergency preparedness increase and it is a means of improving health and well-being, and increases the capacity of our local food systems.

Since 2003, the Community EcoGarden in Fernie, BC has provided gardening opportunities and community education through sustainable organic projects. Inspired by permaculture principles, the garden enables members to utilize individual garden plots to grow and harvest flowers and vegetables. Located in Prentice Park, behind the Tom Uphill Memorial Home this common green space features a native plants demonstration garden and a hummingbird/butterfly garden.

For more information, to inquire about your own plot or to get involved email garden.fernie@gmail.com
