Community Garden Accessible Toolkit

The Community Garden Accessibility Toolkit was made in partnership with the City of Victoria and through a Whole Cities grant.  The purpose of the Community Garden Accessibility Toolkit is to explore how Universal Design principles can be applied to the physical, built environment in community gardens. It provides an easy-to-use guide for garden coordinators to develop more physically accessible gardens.

City of Surrey Community Garden Policy and Practice Audit

In partnership with the City of Surrey, this project sets out to better understand existing community garden policies and practices in Surrey and to gain a further understanding of how the City of Surrey can support new and existing community gardens.

School Farm Grants

A collaborative grant between Farm to School BC and Can You Dig It. This grant is for school districts or independent school boards that want to establish their first school farm.

A school farm is a piece of school district or independent school land (5,000 square feet minimum) that has either a farm business or a non-profit growing food for students and the broader community. The benefits of this farm are that students receive food literacy education from a professional farmer who teaches them how to grow their food. The food can then be used in school meals and other school programs. It can also be shared and/or sold to parents and community members. There are many different models of how this could look. 

This project is funded by the McConnell Foundation and administered by the Public Health Association of BC.
