We connect people who want to garden with the land to grow their own food

Watch our feature from The Food Network


One of the biggest barriers to growing food in the city is access to land - despite the fact that many yards, lawns, and backyards have plenty of room to spare. Sharing Backyards links people with unused yard space with those looking for a place to grow food.

If you have a garden and want to share it with someone, or if you are looking for a space to garden, Sharing Backyards is for you. Have questions? Please read our Frequently Asked Questions before emailing for support.
