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. Since then CRUF BiHi has become a frequently visited spot for many in the community – for lunch break, as a detour on their walk home, to pick up veggies for the week and of course for growing in their plots, volunteering in the market garden or learning from one another. Sign up for our newsletter below to receive updates and hear about opportunities to be involved.
