About Us
We Make Gardening Fun and Simple

Young Urban Farmers™ helps people grow their own fresh, delicious food. No matter your space or ability, we believe in making gardening simple, fun, and rewarding. Since 2009, we’ve been setting up and managing gardens around the GTA using organic gardening principles. We never use GMO seeds or products and source the best quality materials, seeds, and supplies for our gardens. For those in Toronto and GTA, we design, setup, and maintain a variety of edible gardens. For those in Toronto and across Canada, we offer a range of gardening products through our online store with free shipping on orders over $150.

Please take your time to browse around our site where we list our services, get inspired, and learn about our gardening methodologies.
Unique Products, Personalized Service

We believe in local, organic, and sustainably-grown food you can feel proud of eating and sharing with your friends and family. We’ve curated some of the best urban farming and backyard gardening products to fit almost any situation, including raised beds, self-watering containers, hanging planters, and lots of garden accessories. Combined with our personalized service, we hope to share our passion and expertise in edible vegetable gardening with you, your friends, neighbours, and family.

Why Young Urban Farmers

1. Who We Are

Our passion for gardening started from a young age when our founders Chris, Nancy, and Jing tasted their first home grown produce in the family vegetable garden.

As time continued, we honed our knowledge helping our parents tend to the backyard garden, working in community gardens, and learning from the experts. Now, we hope to share that same joy and excitement of growing your own fresh produce with you and your family.

2. What We Do

Since our inception, Chris and his team of urban farmers have helped all sorts of people with their edible gardening and urban farming projects. Whether it is a front or back yard, condo, townhouse, apartment, restaurant, school, community group, or business,we can help you design, setup, plant, and maintain your edible garden.

This can include self-watering, ornamental containers for a simple and easy-to-manage balcony garden. It can also include tilling the land, taking out sod, and converting underutilized backyard space into a thriving vegetable garden. We’ve also setup raised bed gardens that provide fresh greens and salads throughout the summer for individuals and restaurants.

Our approach in curating the best urban farming products and providing personalized service means you’ll get trusted advice tailored to your unique preferences. Whether your needs are big or small, we’d love to talk to you about our wide range of products and gardening services and how we can help you with your gardening project.
