Thank you for your interest in volunteering with My FED Farms! We are very excited to be able to offer community members the opportunity to grow their own food during these unprecedented times.

We are currently looking for volunteers who have vehicles to assist with the delivery and install of the My FED Farms around Greater Victoria! We will need about 20 volunteer groups each week. Installs will be taking place on Thursday's and Friday's between 9 am and 3 pm. Our garden volunteers will be responsible for:
  • Picking up garden supplies (Topsoil in Vic West)
  • Installing gardens at community member homes 
  • Providing an orientation to resident (we will provide you with notes)
  • Drop off garden supplies (Topsoil in Vic West)
The health and safety of our community members and volunteers is extremely important to us. All volunteers will be working individually or in teams of 2 with someone from their own household.
