IMAGINE A WORLD where everyone has access to healthy, local, organic food. The goal of the Sharing Backyards program is to make that a reality by giving anyone who wants to grow food the yard space to do it.
Sharing Backyards encourages urban gardening by connecting those who have the space to garden with those who would like to garden but don’t have the yard space.
It connects neighbours of all kinds in an atmosphere of trust – doing something the beautifies the homewoner’s yard and provides fresh food. Garden partners share the cost of gardening supplies and the abundance of the crops.
To get started, simply browse through the list of cities to the right, or enter your city's name in the search tab here. Once at the right map, you can post your own listing or look for others already offering yard space or gardening skills. Your address and email will remain hidden, and messages come directly through our site to you.
If no program exists in your area yet, YOU CAN START ONE. We'll give you all the tools for free, and set up the details. It'll take between 2-5 hrs of your time per week, and bring enormous benefit to your community. Click Here for details on bringing Sharing Backyards to your community.
