westview community garden
London Community Resource Centre’s Community Garden is the Westview Garden, located at 1000 Wonderland Road South. The garden has been in operation since 2004, on land donated by Westview Baptist Church.
The Westview Gardeners are responsible for maintaining their plots from early spring through to the end of the season when it is time to put their plot “to bed for winter” in the fall.
Plots are rented on a geared-to-income basis, which allows them to be affordable to all. The rental fee ranges from $15 to $40 for a plot of approximately 400-square feet for the season. Plots may vary in size. There are 30 plots at the Westview Community Garden.
The fee structure is based on a total combined household annual income of:
Up to $15.000: $15
$16.000 – $20.000: $25
$21.000 – $24.000: $35
Over $24.000: $40

Please note: Gardener’s have the option to come back the following season. If they decide not to return, their plot is assigned to the first person on the waiting list.
At the Westview Community Garden, London Community Resource Centre utilizes several plots for our Grow Cook Learn program to grow food for cooking sessions, for donation to the London and Area food bank and emergency meal providers. The site will hosts workshops where community members can be actively involved in hands-on learning experiences. Westview Garden is also the site for our Sprouts Children’s Garden Program.
