How to Proceed: Just contact us, by phone or email and we can help you decide on the perfect gift for your particular recipient!

We'll email you the certificate, or post you a hard copy, as needed.
Expert Garden Consultation: Our resident food gardening expert, Sue, has been growing food in Vancouver for 30 years! Your colleague, friend, or loved one can get an on-site consultation about his or her garden - including such topics as where to grow, how to grow, what to grow, what to plant where, when to plant - and how to keep your garden rolling throughout the entire year!
An Edible Green Wall
A gorgeous privacy screen or decorative element in a garden of any size, this green wall is also eminently edible! We build the wall to any custom size, and install it fully planted. Your choice of a shade mix of greens and edible flowers, or a sunny-spot mixes, with such plants as strawberries, beans, and so on. Easily watered and easily replanted.
Furniture-quality custom planters - installed with soil. When your friend or loved one is ready, we can come look at their particular location and discuss their ideas - and build them the garden, patio or balcony of their gardening dreams!
Made of high quality cedar or a tropical hardwood such as teak or ipe, our planters form the anchor for any balcony or small-space garden - or feature-points in larger back- or front-yard garden.
The Veggie Garden Starter
Give the aspiring gardener - or the experienced one looking to expand - a ready-made raised bed garden. Start with just one or two raised beds for the beginner gardener, or give a seasoned gardener an entire garden renovation. Any size or shape is do-able - and all beds come with clean, new soil.
The Backyard Ecologist
Gardening isn't just about the plants themselves, but about the health of the entire eco-system of soil, plants and weather that is a garden. Suggested products include: custom-made birdhouses, mason bee houses, birdfeeders, and so on. The price includes having FarmCity install them for your gift recipient in the yard or balcony. The birds help with pest control - eating thousands of aphids a season, for instance! - and contribute to a generally healthy ecosystem. Mason bees - native, solitary, nonaggressive bees - are great plant and fruit tree pollinators.
