In 2019 Common Roots Urban Farm moved to BiHi park from Bell Rd and Robie St to make way for the QEII hospital expansion. 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.

Our market garden grows fresh greens, vegetables, herbs and flowers using ecological farming practices. Items from our site, and our sister site at Woodside, can be purchased at our weekly market, Wednesdays from 3-6. Find us by the crosswalk on Bayers Road.
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.
We currently have a waitlist. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in being added to our waitlist for a garden plot.
