Event Details

Meet at: Cottonwood Garden eastern entrance : near the corner Raymur and Malkin just south of Prior, just opposite the Vancouver Animal Shelter.

We will walk around Cottonwood Garden looking at the garden itself and the structures that were created there.

The history of this garden and how the community came together to create it is very interesting - it is a model of how community engagement and positive creation can create paradise!

Len Kydd has gardened at Cottonwood from around the time it was started in 1992. Len propagated and planted many of the trees and shrubs in the garden, including in the Native and Asian gardens and can tell the story of how Cottonwood grew into a uniqe urban green space, from the perspective of one who has had a key part in creating it
