Hi,

Vancouver Parks Board approved on May 13 a new Community Garden at Cambie Park (Cambie & 54th). The project was initiated by the South Van Green Thumbs , a group of local Marpole residents who attended a gardening course offered by Farmers on 57th last year and wanted to continue to garden as a community. If you are interested in a plot, email southvangreenthumbs@gmail.com or visit http://southvangreenthumbs.blogspot.ca/p/blog-page.html. We are getting ready to build the garden and appreciate all the help we can get!

Discussion Forum

Food

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
