Planting Happiness Reducing Hunger
Hamilton Victory Gardens is a not-for-profit team of community volunteers dedicated to alleviating hunger and food insecurity in Hamilton Ontario and local communities by using urban agriculture to provide fresh produce to local food banks and meal programs. Hamilton Victory Gardens transforms empty city lots into places of community, education and growth.
2023 Harvest – 2500 pounds
2023 Volunteer hours – 3000 hours
In 2023 Hamilton Victory Gardens partnered with Indwell Hamilton and Compass Community Health Hamilton.
Indwell Hamilton has existing garden plots and in partnership with HVG, fresh produce will be grown to benefit the residents while planting pollinator and butterfly plants to benefit the environment.
In partnership with Compass Community Health, HVG will have access to their greenhouse for seasonal and out of season planting. We welcome greenhouse enthusiasts to volunteer.

Most Dedicated Food Poverty Alleviation Team – Canada
Hamilton Victory Gardens Needs Your Help! The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges throughout the 2020 season and into the 2021 season, consequently causing the permanent closure of one of our largest gardens and the temporary closure of our Macassa Lodge Garden site. Creating engaging, beautiful and accessible green space, growing healthy produce and reducing food insecurity are of the utmost importance to us. Despite the obstacles we have experienced last season, we are not giving up! We are seeking donations to help us enhance our existing gardens so that we can continue to grow and harvest an abundance of fresh, healthy produce and continue to reduce food insecurity in Hamilton. Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping us to plant happiness and reduce hunger!
We are currently running a campaign to assist us with achieving our goal of decreasing food insecurities for as long as we can in the 2021 growing season and beyond.
“Hunger is not an issue of charity. It is an issue of justice.”
