Community Garden

COVID- 19 UPDATE: Please review Community Gardening Best Practices as advised by the Kingston Community Gardening Network Coordinator, based on KFL&A recommendations. 

raised garden plots at the Queen's Community Garden

The garden, located at West Campus, provides a gardening opportunity to Queen's community members and creates a space where people can come together and share experiences and learn new skills. 

This popular initiative has been operating since 2010 and consistently has  a waiting list for spots.  Interested gardeners are encouraged to sign up as early as possible, as garden plots will be assigned on a ‘first come first serve basis.'

There are 19 raised garden plots, approximately 3 feet by 7 feet, located at the West Campus site adjacent to the stone house near Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd.  Gardeners pay an annual rental fee of $25, which provides access to the site during the season (May 1 to October 31), a garden plot, water and gardening tools.

No prior gardening experience is required, as each plot is maintained by an individual renter.  If you do lack experience, it may be a great opportunity to learn from the other members.

To reserve your garden plot, or receive more information, please email
