Richmond Stories: From Farm to Table
Date and time
This activity runs the duration of Culture Days.
Offered in English.
Watch from Farm to Table and learn how, like Indigenous Peoples before them, early settlers were attracted to Richmond by the area’s rich resources, including its fertile delta soils. Early market farmers grew fruit, vegetables and dairy for residents of the Lower Mainland. Even today, 39% of Richmond’s land base remains in the Agricultural Land Reserve and the city is home to one of the largest cranberry industries in North America.
Richmond Stories is a collection of 10 short videos that bring Richmond's history to life through storytelling, archival photos, and modern videography.

The Richmond Museum is operated collaboratively by the Richmond Museum Society and City of Richmond. The Museum’s vision is to make the history of Richmond relevant, engaging and accessible.
To support this vision, the Museum collects, documents, researches, preserves, exhibits and interprets objects of historical and cultural significance to the development and history of Richmond.
As storytellers, collectors and educators, our goal is to create moments of wonder and understanding. Our exhibitions tell the many fascinating stories of Richmond; our collections are windows into how we live, past and present; our education programs open minds, young and old; and our work inspires action for a healthy community and planet.
