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

Veggies now ok for Traffic circle gardens

We've been encouraging art on Green Streets (traffic circle and corner bulge) gardens - and... Veggies can be artful, I think. 

Delighted to read in the most recent Green Streets newsletter that they're now allowing vegetables.

CACV folk who are also Green Street volunteers and doing art in gardens include:

Ella - 8th and Trimble

Julien - 46th and Fremlin

Chloe - 6th and Vine

Mary - 6th and Trafalgar

 

Interested in getting involved? There's a work party Sunday July 10 4-6pm (potluck follows) to design a bee habit-art for 6th and trafalgar.  Contact mary@cacv.ca for more information.

 

Here's a video about Chloe and Bees Please I
