Get Gardening, Burnaby!

The weather is warmer, the trees and plants are in bloom - if you haven't already, it's time to get gardening!

Sharing Backyards Burnaby

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.

How do I register for the program?

Our Sharing Backyards program, in its second year, is now underway!

Head to our Sharing Backyards page for more details on the program and registration process. To register, send us an email to get started!

Get Started

Want to get an idea of how our program works? Check out our feature post (leaflet, PDF). While we have lots of gardens going at the moment, we wanted to let you know about more open opportunities:

North East Burnaby: Two yards (one small yard - one gardener / one large yard - two gardeners)
Central Burnaby: One yard (room for multiple gardeners)

The yard in Central Burnaby operates as an Eco Village. Visit their website for more information.

If you're looking for space or want to offer space in other parts of Burnaby, give us a shout!
