We currently maintain 31 edible gardens throughout downtown Victoria and at our satellite member locations (see map here). Educational signage now installed along Blanshard St. downtown!
We are pleased to be in partnership with LifeCycles Project Society to create an Urban Learning Garden in the courtyard of the Central Branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library. This food forward initiative is a multi-garden experiment in urban placemaking and will become a collection of mini-learning labs over the next few years.
My FED Farm is back for the 2021 season!
Starting in May, we will be providing approximately 500 gardens kits to Greater Victoria residents facing barriers to healthy, affordable food for whatever reason— those living in low-income housing, senior centers, immunocompromised households, laid off workers, frontline workers, individuals with disabilities, single parent households, First Nation communities, etc.
This year, we will continue to offer individual gardens and will ramp up our efforts to provide more community gardens that will serve and foster neighbourhood connections. In a time of continuing isolation and mental health challenges, we are aiming to address the urgent need for connection alongside the ongoing need for food security.
