We grow vegetables for our local community & restaurants using regenerative, organic practices that help to heal the land, soil and water that passes through our hands. We are farming on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples, who are today represented by the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. We take the responsibility of stewarding this land as uninvited settlers seriously, and continuously work to educate ourselves and support local Indigenous food system regeneration.
Our main site is a half acre located just three blocks from City Hall, a stone’s throw from the local fast food joint and tucked in between condos, grocery stores, and the local elementary school is a highly productive and accessible urban farm. It is a green space in the city where a diversity of people with a diversity of skills come together in the ancient and cardinal act of growing food. We also farm a smaller satellite site in partnership with Victoria High School, a few blocks from our main site.
At the Mason Street City Farm we are dedicated to educating people about growing food in the Pacific Northwest and cultivating a just community food system through empowering local residents to actively participate in food security on Vancouver Island. The Mason Street City Farm offers a sustainable model of commercial food production in the city with the intention to build and strengthen community.
