Welcome to GTCG!

The garden consists of communal and allotment plots each measuring 24′ x 24′

Current Garden Status

  • 18 fruit trees were added  by Halton Fruit Project in 2012.
  • All produce from our garden is donated to local food-banks.

Our mission is to provide  a place of diverse abilities, culture and ages who share a common interest in gardening, building  friendships and working together.  The garden provides  an outlet  for different  groups of volunteers from  the local community to participate in active living and also giving back to the community through our affiliation with United Way Oakville. We regularly have corporate volunteers from BMO, Mattamy Homes, G.E., Deloitte  and John Deere Corp. to help  maintain the grounds throughout the growing season. Several student groups have also supported our community gardens in the past as well.

Our Donors

Our  heartfelt thanks and appreciation  to  regular donors:

  • Vern’s water supply (www.vernswater.ca)Halton  
  • Waste management  in providing compost (www.halton.ca)
  • Wood chips from a member of the church (anonymous)
  • Van Beek’s  Garden  Nursery – a ‘one-time’ donor  of top-soil. (www.vanbeeks.com)

2017 Update #2 (May 13, 2017)

Our Tulip garden is now in full bloom! Here are a few pictures from the beautiful tulip garden to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. Once again we would like to thank the Oakville Community Foundtion (www.theocf.org) for helping to make this garden happen.

2017 Update

2017 is an exciting year for Canada as our country is celebrating it’s 150th Anniversary! Freedom Centre is delighted to be the recipient of a grant from Oakville Community Foundation (www.theocf.org/impact/granting) for a Tulip Project and a summer Floral display to commemorate and celebrate this great event.  

Ground work was prepared by volunteers from the John Deere Corporation. ON a beautiful day last October,  some enthusiastic members of the church and friends from MDHS planted 1,560 red and white tulip bulbs in the shape of the Canadian Flag.

With Spring almost upon us, we are looking forward to the result of our hard work. In early May, we will begin our summer planting of annuals in the same theme.
