Get Growing, Victoria!

City Worket at Seedling Greenhouse

Learning to grow food at home contributes enormously to food security and our community resilience, and the City of Victoria is responding to a renewed interest in learning to garden.

 

Get Growing, Victoria! provides food seedlings and garden materials to citizens in need including people disproportionally impacted by the ongoing pandemic. 

Now in its third year, the program is starting from seed again under the care and attention of City staff. Seedlings will be ready for distribution between May 16 and June 5, 2022 through public distribution days in each neighbourhood – check back here for more information.

In 2021, over 86,500 edible plants were grown and 250 cubic yards of garden materials were distributed, supported by over 60 community partners that directly served over 12,000 households.
