    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Green City Growers was established in 2008 to offer local schools, restaurants, hotels, businesses, municipalities and families a professional and experienced "helping hand" to install and maintain organic urban farms in unconventional spaces. We convert unused open spaces on the ground and on rooftops unto vibrant urban farms, anywhere the sun shines.

    Our horticulture team can help anyone produce a high-quality and bountiful vegetable and fruit harvest year-round. We offer full maintenance plans, hands-on farming consultations and educational programs, as well as products and services for winter growing.
