Lake Trail Community School Garden
The Lake Trail Community School Garden is at the heart of Lake Trail Community Education Society. It is managed by LTCES’s Garden Coordinator and cultivated and maintained by the society and community volunteers.
Through the community garden, LTCES provides a natural space for events, programs, permaculture education, and food security and food literacy education.

Community gardens. Essential services in the fight against COVID-19.
Food security is more important now than ever. LTCES is working hard to get fast producing crops into the garden which we can distribute into the hands of the community and those who need it most.
Meanwhile, many of us are starting to think about growing food at home or expanding our own food gardens.
Lake Trail Community School Garden Coordinator, Elaine Codling, has nearly 30 years of organic gardening experience to share. Join the Lake Trail School Garden Facebook group to have your gardening questions answered and join the conversation!
Throughout July and August, LTCES offers Summer Sprouters, a free drop-in program three mornings a week in the garden. Through this program LTCES addressed the play and learning needs of parents and caregivers with young children six months to five years, many living in the Lake Trail neighbourhood. Community partners and guest facilitators are engaged to enrich programming offerings.
Our Lammas First Summer Feast brings community members together to celebrate and share the harvest.
Twice weekly work parties offer community members an opportunity to learn, share skills, and connect to the garden and the food literacy program.
Various other community programs are offered in the garden from year to year!
