What is Garden Sharing?

What is Garden Sharing?

Yard sharing is a popular way across Canada to help people who want to grow fresh, local produce but don’t have access to gardening space.

People who have space they aren’t using offer it to a local gardener. The gardener and landholder make an agreement about how to share the produce.

The gardener grows food for themselves and the landholder makes good use of their garden space.  It’s a win for everyone!
Food gardens can happen in many sunny spaces, not just in the ground. Containers on driveways or decks can also grow food!
