Green Streets COMMUNITY ART GARDEN Corners of 8th & Trimble



We are looking for people with a passion for arts, gardening and/or community building. All are welcome. No experience necessary. 


Join us this month to tend the corner gardens at the intersection of 8th & Trimble and begin decorating the space with 

small art pieces, short stories & interactive poetry to include in the greenery. 





Saturday, April 2 @ 4 - 6pm 

Saturday, April 16 @ 3:30 - 5:30pm

Saturday, April 30 @ 3:30 - 5:30pm


Meet @ the Corner of Trimble & West 8th street 

( 99 Bus - UBC. Get off at Sasamat )


**Come dressed for the weather and please bring garden tools if you have them.

We start off outside and then depending on the activity we’ll move indoors, to the park or a cafe. Call 604 762 8112 if you’re running late. ***





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 - 604-762-8112.
