The Museum of Vancouver, in partnership with the University of British Columbia, 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!


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.


  • What are you growing in your backyards?
