Learn, Grow, Share
Way back in 1997, a group of neighborhood activists got together to address the issues of poverty, food security, and the environment. Through a number of creative community partnerships, The Victory Garden Network blossomed in the borough of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, becoming the first collective garden initiative in Montreal.
Cultivated by a diversity of neighbours, friends and gardening enthusiasts, the Victory Garden Network is a place where people come to learn, grow and share with one another. Gardeners use organic practices, divide the harvest among themselves and share a portion with other neighbourhood groups.
We invite you to come join us in the garden, or start something growing where you live. Together, we can build healthier neighbourhoods and more equitable, sustainable food systems.
Action Communiterre is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1997. We are dedicated to raising public awareness about food security and urban agriculture, while improving the community’s access to healthy organic produce through collectively-managed vegetable gardens and other urban agricultural projects in the Montreal area.
Known as the Victory Garden Network in the NDG area, our 10 organic gardens bring local residents of diverse social and economic backgrounds together to garden, learn about food issues and share a portion of their harvest with the community. Five of our collective gardens are animated by knowledgeable staff that provide a variety of activities and workshops on subjects such as:
To raise additional funds, Action Communiterre also offers its expertise to various organizations, businesses and individuals, and sells a large variety of unique heirloom and organic seeds, seedlings and plants.
