Kingsville Community Garden

The garden was implemented in 2011 and is located at 23 Mill St. W.

Our garden provides fresh local produce; creating a sense of community; developing a connection to the environment; and promoting a healthy lifestyle through vegetable consumption, exercise and fresh air.

ACCESS along with dedicated volunteers maintain a vegetable and herb garden that provides food for people who are in need in our community.  Arrangements can be made to bring fresh produce to those who have limited transportation.

There are over 38 varieties of fruit and vegetables grown in the garden, providing food for people who are in need. All produce goes to volunteers, food banks, and Community Kitchens throughout Essex County.

We provide education opportunities and workshops to assist clients and partners in becoming more food secure and food independent.

Volunteers Needed!

The ACCESS Community Garden Network relies on volunteers in order to be successful. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities throughout Windsor and Essex County. Students can get their 40 hours while working outdoors. We can accommodate large groups and provide fun team-building opportunities.
