Irwin Street Community Garden — At the corner of Irwin and Needham Streets (in the South End). Ceased Operations
The Young Professionals of Nanaimo established a community garden on the corner of Irwin and Needham Street in Nanaimo’s south end. This garden produced lots of food for the community it served with raised garden beds, an irrigation system and enthusiastic community volunteers. Nanaimo Community Gardens Society took over the Irwin Street Garden in the spring of 2014 and operated educational programming on the site.
After two highly successful years of operation, the property was purchased in 2016 and the new property owners asked NCGS to vacate the site in anticipation of building a residence. Please visit one of our other sites if interested in community gardens.
