Have unused yard or garden space? Landless but want to garden? Our yard sharing program will help you connect.
There are many benefits to growing your own food:
- Eating your own organically produced vegetables
- Exercise from maintaining your garden
- Peace of mind and food security
- Less food miles = lower carbon emissions and lower energy energy demands
Whatever your reason is for growing your own food, one of the primary barriers that prevents people in the city from enjoying this healthy and environmentally friendly activity is the lack of available land.
There are many things to consider when choosing a gardening partner and a wide range of potential arrangements that people engaging in yard sharing enter into. There are many websites offering advice on yard sharing arrangements and what to consider.
