Richmond - Seafair/Steveston Area

Our first event went really well - a lovely intergenerational and multicultural group from Tara's neighbourhood came to her home. One older lady could not speak any English, but it turned out that one of the other participants was able to speak Mandarin and translate for her. It was so much fun for us all to get to know each other - people we would never have met otherwise!

Everyone loved making the eco-friendly food wraps and healthy crackers so much we decided to repeat the exact same project (with all the materials we had left over) at my home the next week.

East End of City Hall lawn 511 Royal Ave, New Westminster, BC V3L 1H9

We are excited that the Gardens at City Hall in New Westminster are coming along fast! We have seen a big transformation of the east side of the lawn at City Hall. Thanks to a NSG we are able to have a soil work party on June 25th and connect with the community. All are invited to come join us Sunday June 25th 10am-2pm to help move soil into the garden beds, meet neighbours who will share plots at the Gardens at City Hall, inquire about remaining space and share gardening tips and ideas for the garden! We will have food and drinks on hand.

Imperial Drive cul de sac

Our dirt party Sunday May 28 was a resounding success. Held on the lawn of one of the homes in our cul de sac, it was well attended and catered beautifully to the grownups and children that attended.

Abbotsford Aboriginal Day

Abbotsford Aboriginal Day was an event for the whole community to Celebrate National Aboriginal Day, an important event to create community connectedness amongst Aboriginal and non Aboriginal peoples where knowledge and skills were shared.  The event promoted awareness within Abbotsford and participation in Cultural Activities, and created cross cultural bridging.  Several hundred people attended the event, including Abbotsford mayor Henry Braun and members of council, MLA Simon Gibson and Dawn Johnson, president of the Fraser Valley Metis association.
