Growing Food

Garden plots at the Dunsmuir Community Gardens

Surrey's mild climate and rich soils make it a great place to grow a wide range of products. With over a third of our land base in the Agricultural Land Reserve, farming is an important sector in Surrey's economy.

Opportunities also exist for residents to get their hands in the dirt and grow their own food at one of Surrey's many Community Gardens. If you want to try producing food in your own backyard, check out our tips for gardening in small spaces, or the City's new pilot project for backyard chickens.
