Urban Agriculture

Eating locally grown food reduces the negative environmental impact caused by transportation, decreases waste from packaging, and eases concerns about food safety.

Local food is also fresher, more nutritious, and better tasting.

The municipality of Oak Bay has a large proportion of single-family dwellings with room for substantial gardens, and supports and promotes local food through the the Montieth community allotment gardens and local food sales at the Oak Bay Night Markets.

With your participation, Oak Bay can contribute to a greener environment, stronger communities, and healthier families.
