Welcome to City Farmer's research and teaching garden at 2150 Maple Street in Vancouver. Since 1981 we have shown the public how to grow vegetables and fruit organically on a small city lot. Over the years a variety of simple technologies have been added to the garden to show urban people how they can become involved in food, waste and water conservation. These include rain barrels, a composting toilet and vermiculture. The following is a photographic tour of what you will see when you visit.
