The micro-farms of Vancouver BC are absolutely incredible. After traveling all over the world and being an avid walker I have seen urban backyards from New Zealand to Cambodia, New York to Papua New Guinea and can say that Vancouver BC takes the prize hands down, no questions asked.

OK, I have never seen the gardens in Italy or China — so I could be wrong as it seems that many of the gardens around here come to us from these food-loving cultures, but the soil and rainfall also help to make these gardens hella delicious.

The melding of fig tree and Chinese chard-type greens seems to be common in many of the gardens. The local farmers are very friendly and often happy to share a choko, tomato, fig or other strange edibles with interested parties.
