MOV Backyard Garden

The Museum of Vancouver, in partnership with UBC INSTRCC, presents a garden exhibit on the front lawn of the museum that is inspired by the multicultural backyard gardens of Vancouver. 

Food has and continues to be a medium for civic engagement for migrant communities across the city. This experiential and inclusive garden exhibit celebrates the often untold stories of the backyard gardening community. We’re bringing the backyard to the forefront!

Visitors are encouraged to co-create this exhibit by sharing their family stories, recipes and knowledge around food and gardening. Learn more at
