Not everyone likes mowing, pruning, and landscaping their yard, but some people enjoy it and would benefit from a yard sharing program. There are programs that people can join that promote yard or garden sharing. Advocates of the programs say it’s a win for everyone, including the environment.
Some popular programs include the Edmonton Yard Share and the Halifax Garden Network. There are also more urban farms such as City Street Farms in Regina, Backyard Harvest in Hamilton, and City Beet Farm in Vancouver. Toronto Urban Growers is a group that offers online resources such as how-to guides for people that want to start yard sharing.
Co-ordinator of the Toronto program said there is a growing interest in the idea as there is a shortage of gardening space in urban areas. There are many people living in apartments that don’t have yards and could benefit from this program.
