Yard Share YEG’s program aims to reduce barriers, empower communities, and increase food security through sharing yard space as a unique alternative to community gardens! Yard hosts and gardeners are matched through an online platform and are provided supplies for continuous support. Gardeners grow food in the host’s yard while sharing a small portion of their harvest with the host as an exchange. This collaboration provides the opportunity for those who are food insecure to share space in which to grow food!
Take a look at the Yard Share YEG Toolkit to learn about what yard-sharing can look like in your own neighbourhood!
