CSGP welcomes all K-12 students in Chilliwack schools (including public, independent, and home-schooled). This empowering hands-on experience brings home the importance of food security provides children with the opportunity to reap what they sow—literally! 

Since 1904, our program has been supporting kids in Chilliwack learn to grow their own food and flowers at home. Formerly known as the Chilliwack Schools Garden Program, we’re now the Chilliwack Students’ Garden Program—but you can call us CSGP for short!

  • choose from small, regular, or container garden options
