Vancouver, British Columbia

For more than 30 years, City Farmer in Vancouver, Canada, has been liberating city dwellers from the tyranny of lawns. It educates people about how to plant vegetables, compost their waste and manage their property in an eco-friendly manner. City Farmer also created one of the first websites dedicated to urban agriculture in 1994. It's a great example of the adage, "It's never too early or too late to go green."
