Hosted by Village Vancouver, the Aberthau Garden Project includes VV's Demonstration Permaculture Garden, 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. Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, the garden includes annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants. Offering fun and inclusive social, educational, and cultural activities for community members, including free monthly workshops, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners, providing a learning experience for everyone.
We have several upcoming workshops and other activities. For more info or to get involved: Ross Moster at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Village Vancouver's website .
