( Build + Maintain + Manage + remove )
At Community Garden Builders we construct and install temporary community gardens, maintain these private properties year-round, manage and communicate with our gardeners and remove the beds at the conclusion of the project.
Turn-key property managers for private landowners. Year-round property management and maintenance including: boulevard maintenance, grass cutting, leaf removal, snow-clearing and more.
Our gardens are built in 1-5 days and the average timeline for our projects range from 1-5 years. We have clear rules and agreements with all our gardeners, renewing annually with a 30-day removal clause. We take our projects growing season by growing season.
Unique ‘mobile’ raised garden beds
We build our gardens with custom prefabricated raised garden beds – growing spaces that are completely separated from the ground. Garden beds can be picked-up and relocated at any time, if required (e.g.: site drilling).
High Demand for growing space
We manage the gardens as 'community gardens' whereby local community members are allocated 1-3 plots for their family members to grow food. Garden space is in high demand in urban areas, and all our current temporary gardens are at capacity with a growing waitlist.
