The Shuswap Community Teaching Garden engages new learners, as well as seasoned gardeners, in the art of growing food! We work together to grow an abundance of naturally-grown produce to share with local food banks and volunteers. The garden is in its 7th season in partnership with Shuswap Family Centre and Second Harvest.

The Garden is open from dawn til dusk every day and registered volunteers gain access to shared tools and the weekly newsletter to know upcoming tasks and events. It is located at 5921 30th St NE (North Broadview) with parking. City Bus routes do stop outside the garden as well.  A portable toilet is kindly provided by Reliable Septic through the season.

Special thanks goes to our sponsors, Buckerfield’s & Reliable Septic Services. We also thank Watson’s for their donation of gloves for volunteers, Reimer’s Farm Service for soil and Salmon Arm Ready Mix for play sand for children!

The garden is under mentorship by Sue Moore, prior owner and farmer of Notch Hill Organic Farm and Nursery. She is available to answer questions and also sell bedding plants through email at
