A community garden is a place where people with a passion for community, gardening and delicious food come together to cultivate and harvest in a safe, inclusive and friendly environment. Community gardens are community builders!
The Canal District Community Garden is excited for the opportunity to partner with you. Our mission is to support and create opportunities for all residents of Sault Ste. Marie; together, we are building a garden to welcome everyone.

The CDCG is housed onsite at Etienne Brule Public School and is part of the Planning Partnership Project with the Algoma District School Board, the City of Sault Ste. Marie and Destination North Discovery Group.
There are currently 22 garden boxes at the CDCG. Boxes are available for individuals, families, or community groups.

The yearly (renewable) membership fee is $20 and provides access to garden tools, member events, knowledgeable volunteers, and use of an 8 foot by 4 foot garden bed filled with rich soil.
