Sharing Backyards comes to Burnaby!

Have a backyard that you’d like to garden, but don’t have the time – or don’t know how? Want to garden but don’t have access to land?

If so, our exciting new gardening program Sharing Backyards is for you! This program links people with unused yard space with those looking for a place to grow food

What is Sharing Backyards?

One of the biggest barriers to growing food in the city is access to land -- but many people with yards, lawns, and backyards have plenty of room to spare! Sharing Backyards links people with unused yard space with those looking for a place to grow food. If you have a garden and want to share it with someone, or if you are looking for a space to garden, Sharing Backyards is for you.

The Sharing Backyards concept was originally conceived by Lifecycles, a non-profit organization based in Victoria. Burnaby Food First operates the Burnaby chapter of Sharing Backyards for Burnaby residents.

How do I register for the program?
  • Read the Frequently Asked Questions sheet.
  • Register on the Burnaby Food First forum to connect with people who have garden space and/or those who want to garden.
  • Make a connection with someone in your area.
