MOV Backyard Garden

The Museum of Vancouver, in partnership with UBC’s Initiative for Student Teaching and Research in Chinese Canadian Studies, presents to you a garden exhibit on the front lawn of the museum that is inspired by the multicultural backyard gardens of Vancouver. We recognize that 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!

GET INVOLVED:

We invite you to co-create this exhibit with us by sharing your family stories, recipes and knowledge around food and gardening.

Visit us in person at the garden, or join the conversation online using the hashtag #movbygardens and tag @museumofvan.

LET US KNOW:

  • What are you growing in your backyards? Any veggies that reflect your cultural heritage?

  • What are your favorite garden plants and recipes?

  • Have any fun gardening tips you’d like to share?

  • Have any mysterious seeds from your family or neighbors?

  • What’s the coolest or most unique plant you’ve ever grown?
