Growing communitiesInterest in community growing is increasing due to the benefits for health and wellbeing, as well as its potential to contribute to environmental sustainability and local economic development.
Growing strategyAs part of Active Belfast, we’re developing a Growing Communities Strategy. It aims to ensure there are more opportunities for growing in all its forms, and that all parts of the community are able to experience the benefits.

Community gardensA community garden is a shared project where people from all age groups, abilities and backgrounds come together to grow their own fruit, flowers and vegetables. Volunteers then divide the final produce between them, making sure everyone benefits from working together.
We have ten community gardens across the city. Getting involved with our community gardens is free and everyone is welcome to come along and get their hands dirty, whether you're on your own or part of a community organisation.
Call our Parks Outreach Manager on 028 9032 0202 extension 3641 or email email@example.com for more information on how to get involved.
