Event Description

The Environmental Youth Alliance has partnered with the City of Vancouver to work with community members in creating a new urban agriculture site on the former grounds of Richard Copley's historical orchard. In keeping with the site's history, the focus of the project will be perennial fruit culture and celebration.

The site has been vacant for over 30 years, and is the grassy field that lies between Walker St. and Copley St, just north of Vaness Avenue and the Skytrain.

The development of this site will be a blend of community tended plots, social gathering space, a productive berry patch and orchard, and many other possibilities that have not yet been detailed.

We are holding an open house to gather input and ideas from community members and begin planning for fall planting activities. Whether you want to be involved in further planning and activities, or are simply curious about the site, please join us. Refreshments will be provided.
