Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
This 4:18 min. video on YouTube illustrates the status of the Demonstration Permaculture Garden, during the month of Harvest (September 2016), 18 months after its creation. Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, it is uniquely staged behind the Aberthau Mansion located just off of NW Marine Dr, at walking distance from Vancouver's Locarno Beach. It includes a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, the garden's annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants.
Piloted by Ross Moster, Convenor at Village Vancouver Transition Society, assisted by Mr. Michel Bonin, a volunteer, the Permaculture Garden is part of the Aberthau Garden Project which also includes the West Point Grey Preschool Garden, and (following last year’s Sunflower Garden) the Pumpkin Patch, a new art/garden project by Aberthau artists-in-residence LocoMotoArt: Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein.
