Participants from the United Way Day of Caring initiative will be doing panting, sanding and cleaning at the Fieldhouse. This event is open to the community, and is a good opportunity for garden bed members to have access to tools/watering cans for working on their plots.
Join Peter from our Meet Up Gardeners Group as he leads a workshop demonstrating transplanting and vegetable care. Meet up at Riley Park for 7pm and be ready to learn! More information at https://www.meetup.com/urban-garden/events/241075314/
As we prepare to take over part of the Riley Park Fieldhouse for the community garden, workshops, education, skill development and art programming, we are excited to share this opening event with our neighbours that we share the fieldhouse with, Merakos Collective. Our initiatives are part of the City of Vancouver's Fieldhouse Activation Program.
Come out to the fieldhouse opening party on Thursday March 2nd, 5:00-9:00PM to see the designs for our Serviceable Shed project created at our recent charette, gather ideas on the education and workshops you want to see, and learn about the garden's shared beds and ways to get involved! The fieldhouse is located at 92 E 32nd Avenue, at the Eastern end of Riley Park.
Come by for the opening party and then head across the street to Hillcrest Centre at 7PM to join for our Green Team meeting!
