The city is looking to open the door for community gardens to be planted in public places.
City administration has drawn up a policy as well as a helpful handbook for any community groups or neighborhood associations who are interested in creating their own community garden.
Councillor Chris Thiessen says the city wanted to find a way to provide support to those interested in community gardens.
“I think with the new Community Gardens Framework that has been laid out, they’ll have an easy one stop shop to find out exactly what they have to do in order to make sure that their community gardens are up and running properly.”

The gardens would require $5 Mil liability insurance, roughly a $500 increase to some neighborhood association policies.
