City Farmer’s ‘Demonstration Garden’ in Vancouver, Canada

City Farmer Society celebrates its ‘40th anniversary’ in 2018. We have been promoting urban agriculture since 1978 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our near half-acre ‘Demonstration Garden’ was started in 1981 and continues to operate 37 years later in the heart of the city.

Before securing the garden, we worked out of a downtown office, publishing our newspaper named ‘City Farmer’. We also offered urban farming courses at Continuing Education, University of British Columbia.

The Vancouver Demonstration Garden is our way of welcoming people to a hands-on, organic, food gardening experience.
