We’re a community of volunteers.


A movement is only as good as the people behind it. At Planted, our partners rely on people like you to help them grow, prepare, serve and distribute food, as well as build nourishing, equitable communities.

Our partners are involved in a variety of food security programs in different neighborhoods around Greater Vancouver. Many are looking for volunteers. Visit our Partner page to contact an organization, or browse our projects to learn more.
