The 30 community garden plots at the Park offer Chilliwack residents an opportunity to meet new friends, produce fresh vegetables and flowers, share ideas and expertise, and enjoy the park together.
Annual cost of a community garden plot is just $20
Your annual fee includes membership of GVP as well as your plot fee.
The garden plots are approximately 5 x 2 metres, and there is a 30 cm path on each side of the plot for easy access. Gardeners are asked to maintain the paths around their gardens.
Gardeners must keep their plots tidy and weeded. The plot must be thoroughly weeded by May 1 of each year, and cleaned up at the end of the season by October 31. If your plot is not maintained throughout the gardening season, you will be notified. If the unacceptable condition is not rectified within a specified period of time, the GVP Board will assume responsibility for the plot, and assign it to another gardener on the waiting list.
In respect of your fellow gardeners, do not plant rows of tall items (like sweet corn), or erect structures that may shade your neighbor's garden. If you wish to cover items such as tomatoes, keep such coverings less than one metre above the ground.
No herbicides or pesticides are to be used in the garden plots.
All gardeners are expected to volunteer at both the Spring and Fall clean-up days, to help maintain the Park and/or help at the Annual Plant Sale.
Plots are in high demand, and there is often a waiting list.
