Giving Gardens

Each spring, Urban Roots Garden Market takes time to turn outward and say “thank you” to our local communities through Giving Gardens.

Exciting Days

Each spring, 35,000 seedlings and starter plants are delivered to school garden programs throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. The annual event offers young students an opportunity to learn about where their food comes from and to experience the joy of growing their own vegetables. We hope to support outdoor place-based learning and look forward to seeing your gardens thrive.

School registration for Giving Gardens 2023 is now closed.
All new registrations will be added to the 2024 intake.
