We build, maintain and manage temporary community gardens.
Shifting Growth is a federally registered charity with a mission to transform vacant property into temporary community gardens and growing spaces. We've built over 1,000 individual mobile community garden beds throughout the lower mainland of British Columbia, Canada. Our community garden beds are allocated to local community members who are in need of growing space to grow food and flowers. Using mobile garden beds sitting atop shipping pallets, we are able to work with private landowners to provide a value-added interim land-use. Our garden projects are temporary and have a lifetime of 1-5 years.
We create accessible growing spaces for local community members to garden and grow food.
Our raised garden beds are a quick, high-quality solution for creating low-cost, long-lasting garden beds. Made with Western Red Cedar from the sustainable forests of British Columbia, Canada. The raised garden beds are cornered with a custom powder-coated (black) hinge bracket, secured with powder-coated (black) durable wood screws.
THE ALL-IN-ONE ONLINE COMMUNITY GARDEN MANAGER!
Our custom community garden management software is designed to assist Community Garden Managers in running a community garden. We know how much administration, paper work and time it takes to manage a community gardens. The Community Garden App lets your Gardeners fill out a custom Sign-Up Form, with registration details collecting: contact info, plot allocation, agreement to Garden’s rules, agreement to Gardener’s waiver, payment details, and the option to add other custom data/questions. The completed Gardener Signups are automatically organized, then uploaded to an online spreadsheet for Garden Managers to access and analyse. The worlds first community garden software!
