With spring on the horizon, it’s the perfect time of year to get into a gardening mindset. These days, you don’t need a backyard to grow your own vegetables or flowers. Urban community gardens are fostering connection amongst neighbours and giving condo dwellers the opportunity to grow a green thumb.

Homeowners at FORTE in Burnaby Heights will love the rooftop amenity – not only because of the views, but because of the community garden plots. Imagine popping upstairs to pluck a ripe tomato straight from the vine. Now, that’s fresh eating.

Get the most out of your garden by reading the below tips on what to plant and how to care for them.

The homes at FORTE are now selling in Burnaby Heights. Stop by our Sales Centre, at the corner of Hastings & Gamma, to learn all about the features in these modern condominiums.
