Gardengate is a space of healing and recovery for individuals living with addictions or mental health conditions. Through activities in the garden, we will support you to work towards personal goals such as healthy eating, active living, or vocational training.  Build skills and confidence as you grow and harvest food for yourself, and for the Kamloops community.

You can sign up as a participant if you have an addiction, or a mental health condition, and you are interested in Gardengate programs.

Contact us to set up a tour of the garden.  You can phone or email us directly or ask someone to arrange the tour on your behalf. Tours are about 20 minutes and take place Monday to Friday afternoons by appointment.
