Name: Andrea Bellamy and Ben Garfinkel, their daughter Lila, and Schnoopette the cat
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia
Years lived in: 5 years

Andrea Bellamy and Ben Garfinkel grow plants in every nook and cranny they can find around their urban townhouse. Potted tomatoes and herbs grace their balcony and front patio, the couple share raised beds with their neighbors above their parking garage, and they planted a woodland garden in their cozy back patio area. Andrea helped start a community garden across the street where they grow vegetables, and this summer she is taking part in a project called Lawns to Loaves, which turned a vacant lot into a wheat field right in the middle of Vancouver.
