Neighbourhood distribution days are returning for the Get Growing, Victoria! program. Fall winter veggie seedings and gardening materials will be distributed in a neighbourhood near you between August 16 - September 3. Residents facing barriers to growing their own food can collect free food seedlings and get advice on how to care for them.

Community collection hubs are operated by program partners and some require registration in advance. Please view the Summer 2021 Neighbourhood Distribution Days Schedule for days, times and instructions. 

Get Growing, Victoria! supports communities in need through partnerships with non-profit organizations that distribute food seedlings grown in the City’s nursery in Beacon Hill Park to residents who are facing barriers. Many partner organizations support communities directly through programs like horticultural therapy for mental health support groups, and gardening and food access programs for community kitchens that support people with disabilities.
