Everyone deserves to fall in love with fresh produce
The Edible Garden Project is Growing, Sharing and Teaching about Fresh Local Food
in North and West Vancouver
The Edible Garden Project is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil Waututh), and sḵwx̱ wú7mesh (Squamish) peoples. The Edible Garden Project recognizes that our means of food production is mainly based on a system brought in by white settlers to serve that same population while also being rooted in a systematic process of dispossession. Agricultural policies have long been used as instruments for assimilation and colonization – ignoring both Indigenous knowledge of the land and their right and autonomy over it – and our farm is not excused from this. In our mission to create a community where access to growing and sharing fresh, healthy food is possible for all people, we hope to create a healthier ecosystem and landscape while contributing to a broader system where Indigenous food sovereignty is prioritized and supported.
10,000 lbs of produce
is grown annually at our Urban Farms for the North Shore community.
5000 lbs of produce
is grown at our Sharing Gardens and shared by social services including Food Bank and Harvest Project.
1500+ children and youth
have received our outdoor garden-based educational programming.
