Community gardens and orchards

The City of Vancouver and Vancouver Park Board support community gardens as part of our commitments under the Vancouver Food Strategy and the Local Food Action Plan. There are currently over 110 community gardens and orchards in City parks, on schoolyards, and on private property in Vancouver. There's even a community garden at City Hall. 

Community gardens on City land and in parks are operated by non-profit organizations through operating agreements with the City or Park Board. Community gardens on private property are managed by the property owner, sometimes in collaboration with other companies or community organizations. 

Find a community garden

The map below provides a current listing of community gardens across the City, including the garden organizer and contact information. This information can also be found on the City’s Open Data Portal.

This map is maintained by staff to the best of our knowledge but may have inaccuracies. To add a community garden to the map, or update your garden’s listing, please contact foodpolicy@vancouver.ca

Many gardens currently have a waitlist for plots. These waitlists are managed by each garden, not by the City. 

For other opportunities to get involved with urban agriculture in Vancouver, see links to organizations supporting community gardens in the Resources for planning a new garden section below.
