Event Description

Join us for a community art gardening session to develop an original outdoor eco arts project as part of Vancouver's Green Streets program. 


Multidisciplinary artist and educator, Ella Cooper has recently gained four outdoor Green Street plots and would like to turn them into a veritable eco-arts gallery and space for community engagement. Collaborating with the 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. 


Each weekend will always 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. 


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


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