Growing in the City Update

Just over a year and a half ago, the City of Victoria kicked off the Growing in the City program.

Overall, we’ve heard lots of positive feedback about the changes, and Victoria is starting to emerge as a leader in urban food systems.

Growing in the City
The main “portal” for community gardening and growing food to sell is available here.

There are resources for community gardens, guidelines for rooftop greenhouses, information about how to apply to grow fruit or nut trees on City land, boulevard gardening, and information about small scale commerical urban agriculture and farm stands.

What’s next?
Please help spread the word about these great opportunities to garden and grow more food in the City!
