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 or visit We are getting ready to build the garden and appreciate all the help we can get!
