To come and volunteer your muscles, brains and hearts to the Purple Thistle Collective
Gardeners great food forest plant on Sunday March 4th at 12pm.
The Purple Thistle Gardeners spent a lot of time and sweat getting the ground ready last year,
researching and ordering trees...and now we're ready to plant a big load of fruit and nut trees -
but we really need your help. There will be lots of food and other goodies to keep your belly full
and body warm!
The site is located in an unlikely industrial district of the East End of Vancouver, on Charles
street where it crosses Vernon Drive just a few blocks down from the Purple Thistle. The
planting of these trees is the second phase of our project on this site. We will continue to plant
other bushes, flowers, and food producing plants in addition to our plans to create some naturally
built cob structures that will help the site become a functional community space as well.
The Purple Thistle Gardening group is a collective gardening group that is committed to learning
through engaging in gardening, reclamation, and wild crafting projects. We are youth focused,
but happy to have anyone of any age come and join us. For more information please contact
Marla at email@example.com or call her at (604) 788-3995.
When: Sunday March 4th, 12pm - 5pm
