Hi Jessica,

You might also try contacting Leslie Kemp, who is a VV steering committee member and directs the Community Development program at Langara. VV's Learning Opportunities Group has discussed  helping it get going (for instance, Community Gardening Network members joining in a big "barn raising" work party to help move it along), but nothing definite yet.

 

Cheers,

Ross

VV convenor

I believe possibly this spring.The woman at Langara who is organizing it is Leni Gelten, either a staff person or teacher there.
