If you or someone you know is interested in growing their own vegetables,
the Emmaus Community Garden has several garden beds available for new
Each garden bed is rented for the season by a group or individual who then
grows vegetables for their own use. The cost is $20 for the year. Included
with the garden plot is access to assorted hand tools, a watering system
and compost. For anyone new to gardening, there are mentor volunteers
available for advice and support.
Located behind Emmaus Anglican Church (formerly St Matthew’s), the church
congregation started the garden in 2012 in support of community-building,
food security and good stewardship of the land.
Anyone interested in obtaining a garden plot at the Emmaus garden can call
the church at 705-759-2545, or email [email protected]
In 2017, Clean North volunteers added eight new garden beds to the Emmaus
garden, bringing the total number of beds at Emmaus to twenty-four.
The public is welcome to drop by and visit the garden any time during
daylight hours. The church is located at 1643 Wellington Street East in
Sault Ste Marie, Ontario.
