Village Vancouver

Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities

Westside Permaculture Corridor

A three year project 2019-21) supported by a Greenest City Grant  from the City of Vancouver to create a Westside Permacuture Corridor, primarily in Kitsilano. New participants/volunteers welcome. Our Westside Permaculture Corridor project is one of our core elements in the VV Community Food Resilience project.

We're currently seeking additional public and private spaces for new permaculture gardens. (E.g. have a front lawn you'd like to see converted into a permaculture mini-food forest forest?) 

Current gardens in our corridor include:

Raised Beds at Kits Neighbourhood House: This garden has raised beds on the rooftop of Kits Neighbourhood House. Started in 2015, its focus is on combining Square Foot Gardening techniques with Permaculture for maximum yield in a very small space. 

Vancouver Public Library: Located on the patio of VPL's Kits Branch is a permaculture garden run by a handful of volunteers working with Society Le Village. The garden is comprised of 5 sections in the middle of the patio and grows organic herbs and vegetables. While creating/maintaining the garden, volunteers follow the 12 permaculture principles as much as possible.

Blvd. Garden: This garden started in 2021. It incorporates ways to apply Permaculture in a small space and focuses on demonstrating how a blvd. garden can be aesthetically pleasing with the use of flowers.

Kits Community Centre Collaborative Garden: Established in 2014 by a group of collaborative gardeners in association with Kits Community Centre. The focus was to be a food and beauty producing space for the community, but also a learning tool for youth volunteers. Make sure to check out the garden's main feature, the Food Forest permaculture area, that has many edible/berry producing plants (including native BC species)!
