Event Description

"Get a progress update and share your views on the master plan for the combined Hillcrest and Riley Parks. View posters about proposed improvements for vehicle and pedestrian circulation, parking, and landscaping. Learn more about construction plans for 2014 at the former sites of the Vancouver Curling Club, Percy Norman Pool, and Riley Park Community Centre and Rink." (from Parks Board invitation)

VERY IMPORTANT for Village is the opportunity that MAY be afforded to The Main Street Neighbourhood Village and the Seed to Sky Society to manage large new community garden AND collaborative garden spaces, each several thousand square feet. We would like very much--with YOUR HELP--to grow as much food as possible in these spaces, build community, and teach permaculture here. We need lots of involvement from the Main Street 'Hood, as this is our baby, but Villagers from all over who have an interest in helping to farm nearly a half acre of space in total, are encouraged to attend this Open House and join in the true re-greening of Vancouver.
