About the Sharing Farm
We grow vegetables, using sustainable farming practices, for donation to the Richmond Food Bank and community meal programs. We also sell our produce in a weekly CSA (community supported agriculture) program, and via an online store, a farm stand and at farmers markets. Located in Terra Nova Rural Park, we cultivate 4 acres of land. The Sharing Farm strives to be an agricultural community centre where everyone is welcome and bonded by a common goal to address food insecurity in our community.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the farm, with hundreds of people helping each year in a variety of ways. We also hold the annual Richmond Garlic Festival, which draws upwards of several thousand attendees from across the Lower Mainland.
