The Greater Saint John Area Community Garden (G.S.J.C.G.) is a volunteer project working with the Leisure Services Department of the City of Saint John. It was established to provide an opportunity for citizens to have a place to garden. The Community Garden is located on the former site of the Rockwood Elementary School - across from the Rockwood Park Main Entrance.
The Garden initially consists of over 100 small plots, on which citizens will be able to grow a variety of vegetables and flowers. The plots are open to residents of Saint John, and are distributed on a first come basis. Citizens who have plots are required to abide by rules of the Garden, and pay a nominal fee of $15.
The G.S.J.C.G. committee consists of citizens who are volunteering their services to help create community gardens. These gardens have been proven to be a great benefit in communities where they have been established.
