Meet at the garden -- behind the Mansion, just off of NW Marine Dr.
Free and open to all ages. Find out what's happening this year and how you can get involved. Village Vancouver will have a seed library present - you can get some free seeds - and Aberthau artists-in-residence LocoMotoArt will be there to tell you about their Pumpkin Patch Project.
Hosted by Village Vancouver, the Aberthau Garden Project includes VV's Demonstration Permaculture Garden, the West Point Grey Preschool Garden, and (following last year’s Sunflower Garden) the Pumpkin Patch, a new art/garden project by Aberthau artists-in-residence LocoMotoArt: Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein. Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, last year Village planted annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants. Offering fun and inclusive social, educational, and cultural activities for community members, including free monthly workshops, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners, providing a learning experience for everyone.
