Grow Nanaimo

Due to COVID-19, this exhibit has been postponed till 2021-22

Farming played an important role in Nanaimo’s history.  Grow Nanaimo includes stories of culturally diverse farmers and farming families, agricultural communities and practices, and some of the foods grown and eaten in Nanaimo.  Five Acres, now known as the Harewood neighbourhood, was a unique example of a planned farming community and is an exhibit highlight.  Through photographs, artifacts and interactives, Grow Nanaimo explores the past and present of farming in Nanaimo.  This exhibit was developed in partnership with the Nanaimo Archives.
