Not Using Your Backyard - We Will!

Backyard sharing is becoming more and more popular! If you have a backyard, but aren't using it to garden, or don't know how, consider sharing it with a neighbour! This is a great way to put more urban land into production, and to get to know people in your community!

In Burnaby? Let Burnaby Food First help 'make the match' via our Sharing Backyards project. For more information or to get involved email burnabyfoodfirst@gmail.com
