You're welcome! We're running a couple garden work parties a week in Kits - one at the Kits Village Collaborative Garden in Kits Point, near the beach (our 5th year), and one at our Green Streets garden near Broadway. The work parties are posted in Events - the next ones are on Saturday afternoon, and we're currently focused on planting. New volunteers are welcome at the collaborative garden and no experience is necessary.
The seed packet work party will be at 1388 Laburnum St. So far we have about 8 volunteers. We have several seed libraries and have a diy seed packet design, which we'll be folding into packets (several hundred of them). Again, no prior experience needed. Definitely feel free to come by for a bit. (A potluck will follow at 6 for folks wanting to stay and share a meal.)
Welcome to Village Vancouver! We have several gardening opportunities, if you're interested, including projects in Kits. We're also folding seed packets for our seed libraries this coming Sunday from 3-6 (location near Kits Beach) and looking for a few more folks to help.
Interested in participating in a VV garden? We have collaborative gardens/garden spaces in 5 neighbourhoods. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Gardening now in progress. New gardeners welcome (space allowing).
