Pendrell and Bidwell traffic diverter

In early June 2014 we used our Gordon House grant to spruce up the traffic diverter near the Lord Roberts Elementary School at Bidwell and Pendrell with long-lasting plants and a brick walkway.

We added azaleas, two red Japanese maples, several poppies and other plants to fill in the pocket garden in the traffic diverter. The plants helped create a fuller and more mature garden – but a bigger change was our own Yellow Brick Road.

Gilpin Elementary

Thanks to the Vancouver Foundation through its Neighbourhood Small Grants, they inspired us to host the very first multicultural potluck dinner for our Gilpin community at Gilpin Elementary.

2240 Wall Street

Yesterday, at 2240 Wall Street, we upturned the sod to dry. Today the sod gets trucked to the North Van green waste facility that accepts sod. Next we will spread some beautiful Transform Soil Conditioner compost over the dug area, and we will plant our berries.

We have blueberries, huckleberries, strawberries, and some flower seeds to attract the pollinators. We also have some bush beans to plant on the higher, dryer level.
