The Backyard Garden Project emerged in response to the COVID-19 crisis and the inspiring resilience being demonstrated by our community. As we have collectively continued to navigate these uncertain times, people have been connecting more strongly than ever with their communities, neighbours, and nature. In learning new skills and finding new hobbies, many people are learning to garden and grow fresh food at home.
Alongside the rising interest in gardening, Green Venture believes this to be an opportune time to develop a more local, sustainable, and equitable food system. The Backyard Garden Project aims to support urban growing and community gardening whilst also facilitating the sharing of locally grown food and garden knowledge.
