Farm Tour and Potluck at The Plot Market Garden and City’s Edge Farm

August 24 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

You’re invited to a Farm Tour and Potluck at The Plot Market Garden and City’s Edge Farm in Victoria, B.C. If you’re curious about what land matching and sharing is all about, want to learn what it’s like to apprentice on a farm or host farm apprentices – or just want to check out what your local farmers are up to – join us for the event. Come out to connect with other farmers and food lovers, share a meal and learn about farm start-up!

We’ll enjoy a farm tour from farmers Emily and Tyler at The Plot Market Garden, who grow mixed vegetables on two acres of land including one leased acre that they found through the Young Agrarians U-Map. We will learn how Emily and Tyler set up their new leased acre this year, deal with wireworm challenges and are trialing flowers and farm stand sales for the first time! After our tour of The Plot, we will make our way to City’s Edge Farm just a few minutes away, where head farmer Sol was matched with 3 acres of farmland in 2023 through the B.C. Land Matching Program. We will learn how Sol and her crew turned 3 acres from field to production beds in their first year on the land and how Sol grows vegetables, herbs, berries and flowers with the vision of building a diverse agro-ecosystem over time. The day will wrap up with a shared potluck meal at City’s Edge and informal time to socialize with other farmers and farm-curious folks.
