All it takes is a few garden beds to transform a space, and this is exactly what we did in this Vancouver yard. Victory Gardens built and installed this veggie garden, provided coaching, a custom planting guide and map and all the seeds and starts for a successful season.
This large home garden is growing enough food to feed a family! Kale, tomatoes, beans, basil, broccoli and more are abundant. Keep posted, as this garden is to soon be expanded to grow even more food!
With large stone pavers, a few strategically placed hand-made boxes and a beautiful custom 3 bin compost system, this west-side yard was transformed for food and compost; all of the compost required to fulfill this garden’s needs.
Victory Gardens, in collaboration with Shifting Growth, constructed this practical and highly functional garden for The Acorn. Abundance varies from a broad selection of perennial and annual herbs, edible flowers and a tonne of tomatoes.
For the Abode Restaurant on Robson, Victory Gardens installed custom powder coated steel planters brimming with edibles for their summer patio. Lavender, mint, evergreen huckleberry, alpine strawberries, and rosemary.
This 47th floor patio garden is comprised of three custom-built stacked cedar post patio containers on castors, growing pea shoots, kale, cilantro, tomatoes, basil, strawberries and evergreen huckleberries.
Victory Gardens visited this urban apartment patio and was immediately excited about the possibilities. Three containers later, the residents are growing herbs and veggies for a family of two.
Victory Gardens, in partnership with West Elm, hosted a farm-to-table dinner for Kinfolk. Local, sustainable and seasonal fare paired with recipe sharing and good people, were served up in abundance on this delightful evening. Photos by Tracey Ayton
Victory Gardens was excited to participate for the second year in the annual community event, Main Street Car-Free Day. We spread around our seeds, starts, and gardening advice. Check out the series of portraits with our old-time county fair prop!
As a part of Vancity’s annual Staff Appreciation Party, Victory Gardens offered our planting knowledge and skills to any keen planters. The planted Shifting Growth beds were headed to a community garden the following day.
Victory Gardens contributes weekly to the Vancouver based online mag, Scout Magazine! Our contributions include tips on how to grow and how to prepare the delicious veggies, fruit and herbs which we grow, and why they’re so awesome! Archives found here.
In June of 2013, Part & Parcel featured a lovely story and interview with VG co-founder/owner, Sam Philips. All shots were taken during the installation of The Acorn garden, telling the photographic story of our process.
Victory Gardens was featured in the, always lovely, Edible Vancouver. A big thanks for the inclusion and the articulate and graceful words by our friend and fellow grower, Darcy Smith.
