Free compost for community gardens
The City offers garden compost donations from the landfill's compost yard to community-based projects in Vancouver.
All requests are reviewed by the City of Vancouver on a case by case basis.
Public lands donations
For garden compost donations for projects on public lands, contact the Green Streets program coordinator at email@example.com.
Private lands donations
For garden compost donations for projects on private lands, your community garden must:
- Be new this year
- Be a community effort that involves many people (for example, neighbours or a church congregation)
- Grow food
The City encourages community gardens receiving garden compost donations to be open for the public to visit. To request a compost donation for a community garden on private land that meets this criteria, email Food Policy staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
