Have a big yard and don’t know how to manage the upkeep of your garden? You need a local gardener to connect with. Have a desire to garden but your small space just won’t work, you need a connection who has a backyard. We just want you to get some garden upkeep or yummy vegetables out of the deal and maybe form a new friendship in the process.
In Metro Vancouver, over half of all household food waste could, at some point, have been eaten – things like uneaten leftovers or ingredients that spoiled before they were used. That’s over 100,000 tonnes of avoidable food waste per year! (Source: Metro Vancouver’s baseline study). We don’t want to waste any more food and shared backyards are one way to address this.
We leave the connecting up to you and assume no liability for these connections.
