About...

 

We meet every other Saturday. Each meetup will include gardening plus a range of different activities including creative brainstorming, outdoor poetry making, creating a five senses garden, collaborating with youth, walks down to Jericho beach for inspiration, community building, conversation and more. 

 

Multidisciplinary artist and educator, Ella Cooper has recently gained four of the City of Vancouver's Green Street plots and would like to turn them into a veritable eco-arts gallery and space for community engagement. Collaborating with the Community Arts Council’s Eco Arts Salon, gardeners, guerilla knitters, creative minds, poets and interested members of the community we will be working to create a happy blend of community gardening and eco arts projects that creates an interactive green space that will evolve as the plants grow. 

 

If you can't make it to this meeting but would like to be actively involved in the gardening and eco-arts making, please contact Ella at ella@eapnetwork.ca - 604-762-8112.
