Canada: Concrete Garden Magazine

Grow – A short film by Concrete Garden Magazine – about urban agriculture in Victoria, B.C. from Concrete Garden Magazine on Vimeo.

The five students decided that people needed to be more informed and open to the idea of food grown in urban settings, whether that was through community farms, backyard gardening, or just by supporting local farmers.

Concrete Garden is a quarterly print magazine about sustainable urban agriculture based in Victoria, B.C. We feature compelling stories on our food system, local businesses, Indigenous food practices and food sovereignty, green architecture, and global ecological issues from a local perspective.

Concrete Garden is dedicated to decolonizing agriculture and food communities throughout our work. We humbly acknowledge that this magazine is produced on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish – the Lekwungen and W?SÁNE? peoples.
