Gardens of NSHA
Nova Scotia Health Authority is more than its hospitals and health centre; the work of our physicians, health professionals, staff, leaders and volunteers extends into the community, in the fabric of Nova Scotia as we work to make this province healthier.
A part of that work is building food security and wellness through the use of community gardens. Across the province, health authority lands are used to grow hundreds of pounds of food. As importantly, these garden projects offer a means to teach people about food security, the importance of fresh, healthy food, and the wellness that can be achieved, simply by working the soil.
Here are a few of the gardens that NSHA grows.
