Immigrant Services Association of Nova Scotia (ISANS)- Growing Strong Neighbourhoods Project

The Growing Strong Neighbourhoods (GSN) Project works with immigrants and long-term residents of the Fairview and Clayton park areas to create community gardens, while working on issues of food security, poverty and community belonging.
We built Glen garden in 2012 in collaboration with the Bhutanese-Nepali community arriving in Nova Scotia as refugees, a community with a long history as farmers in their country of origin. Since 2012, the project has grown to include four community gardens.

Parks we work in:

  • Glen Garden-corner of Glenforest Ave and Smart Street
  • Multicultural Garden – 3311 Ashburn Ave.
  • Killam Garden – Behind 21 Plateau crescent
