Design + Build of Food Gardens in Esquimalt, BC

Transforming under-utilized spaces into abundant food producing landscapes.

Our team provides complete and professional landscape design and build services for people and organizations who are serious about growing quality organic produce in Esquimalt, BC.

We work in front & back yards, public parks, community spaces, university & school gardens, and on farms.

What is an Edible Landscape or Foodscape?

Edible landscapes (or foodscapes) combine the aesthetics of formal landscaping features with the functionality of a ‘kitchen garden’ and ‘home orchard’. They can provide year-round access to fresh, nutrient-dense fruit and vegetables as well as give you a chance to get outside more often and engage with nature.

We integrate seating spaces, patios, trellises, arbors, fruit trees, ponds, vegetable boxes, water collection, and even chickens into beautiful, productive landscapes that nourish the belly and the soul.

The Faces Behind The Work

We are a family-owned & operated business, run by Solara & Tayler. We also have an amazing crew!

Together, we specialize in creating organic landscapes that produce food year-round and look amazing! We also strive to create a regenerative work environment for our staff by providing meaningful work, health & dental benefits for full-time staff, and access to unique produce.

View Our Projects and Services

Since 2010, we have worked with hundreds of clients, including home-owners, landscape renovators, backyard gardeners, community groups, municipalities, research institutions, music festivals, farmers, community groups, and local businesses. Despite this wide range of clients & projects, there is a common thread that unites our work:
breathing life back into degraded landscapes while growing food.

We live and work on beautiful Southern Vancouver Island – the traditional homelands of the Lekwugen, Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We are grateful for their stewardship of these lands.
