Community Garden

Join the Sandown Community!

Sandown has built a lively community space where folks can get their hands in the dirt, grow delicious, nutrient-dense food, meet their neighbours, and contribute to the restoration and stewardship of the land.​

The community garden is 15,000 square feet of in-ground and raised beds, with wood chip pathways and a central gathering area. Garden beds are 3’x10’ or 4’x10’ each, and membership includes irrigation and use of some larger tools such as wheelbarrows. Participants are expected to have their own hand tools. 


Memberships are annual, and priority is given to North Saanich and Sidney residents who don’t otherwise have gardening space. The annual cost is $100 for a raised bed and $50 for an in-ground bed, which includes irrigation and tool access.


No synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or pressure treated wood is allowed, and garden beds must be kept weeded and mulched (using straw or leaves).

We host three to four social work-parties each year, to bring the community together to tackle some of the bigger jobs at the beginning and end of the season. 

Members can access their garden at any time, and are asked to please be respectful of the working farm, and keep the gate closed and the deer out!


Reach out for more information or to sign up for a spot for the 2024 growing season. We look forward to you joining the community!
