The Food Eco District’s My FED Farm project is back for the 2021 season! Starting in May, we will be providing approximately 500 gardens to Greater Victoria residents living in low-income housing, senior centers, immunocompromised households, and to laid off workers, frontline workers, individuals with disabilities, single parent households and First Nation communities.

 

This year, we will continue to offer individual gardens and will ramp up our efforts to provide more community gardens that will serve and foster neighbourhood connections.  In a time of continuing isolation and mental health challenges, we are aiming to address the urgent need for connection alongside the ongoing need for food security. We hope these larger community gardens will be a place for intergenerational learning, support, communal healing, and of course, joy! By building community into these garden installs, we are also hoping that the benefits of the gardens will continue long after this growing season.

 

We have a group of amazing volunteers who will be assisting with the transportation and set up of the gardens but we need your help to cover the costs of garden materials.

 

Each garden kit includes:

  • 2 - 5 round planters
  • Soil
  • 3 starter plants
  • Seeds
  • Delivery of materials 
  • Initial consult & info package
  • Access to webseries and #MyFEDFarm chatroom
