The Edible Garden Project

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.

We Grow

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.

have received our outdoor garden-based educational programming.

What people are saying

I never felt like I had a place in my community until I started volunteering here

— EGP Volunteer

I got involved with the EGP to be part of a community. I love working in the gardens – the whole process from seed to harvest. The EGP staff and volunteers are amazingly nice and knowledgeable. What’s not to like!

— EGP Volunteer

I learned about how to build and maintain soil structure, how to use a seeder, the importance of rotating crops, the word cotyledon, how to harvest cucumbers/zucchinis/carrots/kale/chard/beets/turnips/tomatoes, and so many other small and beautiful things. Thank you all for this!
