Quite a typical east-van back-yard: A small amount of green space (often a small strip), adjacent to a large slab of concrete! Well, lets work with what we have, right? We put in some boxes, with trellis for vertical growing, complete with a custom bench for outdoor screenings!
It’s amazing what a difference putting in a food garden can make to making a space more user friendly and FAR MORE PRODUCTIVE! Like many in the city, this yard was torn apart my chafer beetle, so we turned it into a place where kitchen ingredients are grown!
The best places to grow food are the following: Most sunny and under-used. For a lot of folks, this means growing food in the front yard! Food gardens can be and are beautiful, lets improve front yards all across the city by growing food in them!
Why leave any grass when growing food makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE! This yard was previously ravaged by chafer beetle and now it’s home to a LARGE annual veggie garden, four fruit trees, a perennial herb and berry garden (full of raspberries, strawberries and blueberries)!
Building a garden in this beautiful yard was a pleasure: The existing landscaping was real sharp and adding a productive element to their yard made it that much better! With a large selection of veggies and perennial herbs, these folks are eating from their garden every day!
It warms our hearts when you meet folks who are truly committed to living consciously. These gardeners believe in consuming food with reverence and respect, so building a garden was a natural addition to their west-side home!
We’re always excited when a business reaches out to engage staff through meaningful activity! Concert Development did just that when we built them a beautiful rooftop garden for their downtown office. We teamed with Lifespace Gardens on the beds, the rooftop being a perfect application for a self-irrigating option!
Victory Gardens partnered up with our favourite North Shore crew, Lifespace Gardens, to build and install this fantastic garden for Saje Wellness. VG provides group coaching for staff at Saje and along with the help of their on-staff chef, they use produce for lunch and snacks!
During their lunch hour, the Hootsuite garden team receives coaching sessions from Sam on the rooftop!
There’s no better way to make a patio shine than to grow food on it. The simple request was for space to grow the hot crops these gardeners are nuts for; tomatoes, basil and cucumber, the perfect ingredients for a summer salad. With wheels, these boxes are extra versatile too!
This Hastings-Sunrise foodie was tired of his tiny East Van balcony doing nothing but collecting dust! So, we built him a patio veggie garden and now he’s got the space to grow a ton of greens, herbs and brassicas!
This East Van south-facing patio is the perfect location for a few Victory Gardens handmade cedar containers. Along with providing the boxes, we are coaching with this restauranteur, teaching him all he needs to learn to grow organic veggies!
