We build, maintain and manage temporary community gardens and growing spaces.
Community Garden Builders is a Vancouver-based social enterprise with a mission to transform vacant property into temporary community gardens and growing spaces. Our projects represent a unique partnership between landowners and community members, providing much needed garden space for the community as well as interim property management for landowners. Using mobile garden beds set atop shipping pallets, we create accessible urban spaces for local community members to grow their own food and flowers.
Projects are temporary and have a lifetime of 1-5 years, and we see them through each step of the way: consultation, design, build, installation, community engagement, garden management and eventual garden removal.
See our Gardens page for location, details and photos of all our raised garden projects.
Our raised garden beds are made with B.C. Western Red Cedar, cornered with a custom powder-coated (black) hinge bracket and secured with powder-coated (black) durable wood screws.
