Urban agriculture improves environmental sustainability, provides employment opportunities, reduces food waste and is part of our Parks and Recreation Master Plan. You can engage in urban agriculture by beekeeping or growing food and non-food plants throughout the city. This includes, growing:

  • grains
  • vegetables
  • mushrooms
  • fruits
  • medicinal herbs
  • ornamental plants

Community gardens

Community gardens are plots of land gardened collectively by a group of people. These are a great way to connect with neighbours and are ideal for people who don't have their own private garden or property. The City has two community gardens available.

Farmers market

Visit the Port Moody Farmers Market to purchase locally produced foods and products.

Container gardening

If you don't have enough space to plant a traditional vegetable garden, try a container garden. Talk with your local gardening centre to find out what plants grow best in our climate.

Reduce food waste

Growing your own food and buying from a local farmers market are two good ways to lessen your impact on the environment. Learn more about reducing food waste through Metro Vancouver's Love Food Hate Waste campaign.
