With the increasing density and cost of living in inner-city Vancouver, is there still a place for community gardens or even urban farms? Starting at Thornton Park and ending at Charleson Park, we will stop by a few different community gardens, urban farms & an urban orchard to discuss the various models of community/communal gardens and their place in the livelihood of the communities living in this area. Please arrive 10 minutes early.
