We share a passion for gardening and good food. We supply the motivation and muscle, renting and working individual plots. The City of Burnaby supplies the farmland we garden on. If you’re landless, but a peasant at heart, come down and visit us in person. Find out who we are and what we grow.

BARAGA members are not just plot renters, they participate as members of the Association.

Please download and read our Handbook so you can understand the requirements and obligations of membership.

Note that the waiting time for a plot is over a year and we are not accepting applications from non-Burnaby residents at this time.

The Burnaby and Region Allotment Gardens Association manages a community garden located in the Big Bend region of the City of Burnaby. The land area (most of which is gardened) is about 330 metres by 180 metres. This 5.9 hectare garden is part of the approximately 250 hectares of Burnaby land which is within the  4.7 million hectare British Columbia Agricultural Land Reserve. There are 372 garden plots. Each plot is 1000 sq ft (93 sq m) with plots measuring 50ft by 20ft.

How to Find Us

You’ll find us in south Burnaby between Marine Drive and Marine Way, east of Byrne Road on Meadow Avenue.
