Common Roots – Bi-Hi Park
In 2019 Common Roots Urban Farm moved from Bell Rd and Robie St to make way for the QEII hospital expansion. In March, the city approved our new site at BiHi park at the bottom of Bayers Rd where we are currently settling in. Sign up for our newsletter below to receive updates and hear about opportunities to be involved.

Market Garden and Deep Roots
Our market garden grows fresh greens, vegetables, herbs and flowers using ecological farming practices. Our produce and bouquets are sold at a pop-up market stand at the Woodside Ferry Terminal from 3:30-5pm every Thursday from June-October. Vegetables from the market garden are also used as snacks for hospital patients and our greens are sold at hospital cafeterias.

Our community garden has 36 plots. They are 4 feet by 12feet and cost $30 for the growing season (subsidies available on request). Water is available on site and garden tools are accessible at select times. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in a garden plot.
We host two workshop series each season in the Spring and Fall. We are just finishing up our Spring series. Stay tuned for our Fall schedule!
We are also working on a series of Lunch and Learns for surrounding offices. Please contact email@example.com to find out more.
