The City of Fort St John gardens have been recognized throughout the area and country. In 2010, The Formal Gardens and Fish Creek park both received Recognition Awards from the Communities in Bloom Judges.
Green spaces, gardens and safe cared-for-communities are places people want to live in and stay in. Fort St. John's gardens facilitate residents’ participation in a broad range of recreational pursuits and their enjoyment of a healthy lifestyle.
Ensure that it is the right plant for this zone. Fort St. John is a zone 2b – 3. If you purchase anything over a zone 3 then you are taking chances. The winters here are unpredictable from year to year, so plant any fruit on a south face with good wind protection.
We can landscape our grounds with edible gardens for the community to enjoy and so much more! Many municipal facilities gardens have been planted with edible fruit trees, shrubs and flowers, all free for the pickings when the time is right. All the vegetation outside the Pomeroy Sport Centre facility is planted with native species to the north and most of them are edible. This includes plants such as Rhubarb and Strawberries.

The FSJ Community Gardens were created in 2010 in partnership with numerous community organizations that pulled the idea together. Today, the gardens explode with greenery, vegetables from the experienced green thumb to organizations and youngsters planting seeds.
