School and Youth Gardens
School and Youth gardens are growing in Hamilton. Although the HCGN doesn’t provide formal support for school garden development, many of the steps and resources needed are similar to any other community gardens so check out all of our resources. We also invite requests for help if you have a group ready to get a garden started.
Get Connected to a School or Youth Garden
Check our garden directory for school and youth gardens that have registered with the Network. Currently, most school gardens aren’t on the map so contact the school board or a specific school to find out if they have any gardens on site.
