West End

We received the grant in late spring/early summer. It was a bit too late for most gardeners who already bought seedlings and seeded their plots with herbs and vegetables.
After consulting with the Mole Hill gardeners, we decided to use portion of the grant money to purchase small gardening tools (garden trowels, sheers, cultivators, watering hose, twine, etc).
The rest of the grant was spent on garlic bulbs which are to be planted in fall; we distributed these garlic bulbs among the gardeners with planting instructions.

St. Paul's Hospital, Providence Building

Through the Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) and the Greenest City NSG, the Downtown Intercultural Gardeners Society (DIGS) has been able to acquire the necessary equipment to build two beehives for the DIGS/St. Paul’s Observational Beehive Project that will be located on the roof of the Providence Building at St. Paul’s Hospital. DIGS is an intergenerational, multiethnic group of predominantly downtown Vancouver residents who have operated a community garden on the rooftop of St. Paul's Hospital over the past seven years.

Downtown Vancouver

I am partnering with WE Arts (West End Arts Society), Babylon Buttons and the Women's March to create buttons that encourage dialogue around women's rights. Originaly I hoped to be a regular interactive event at the West End Summer Art Market but some personal events got in the way of that. There will be several booths set up at the 2019 Women's March where people can create their buttons.

PAL Theatre

Every Monday evening we have a drop-in table tennis event where anyone can come and learn to play table tennis. During the rest of the week we have various people playing their own organized games.

As the theatre is used quite often in the wider community, people are aware that a table tennis table and equipment is available so it has made an appearance at parties hosted in the theatre, and recreational time during event set up and events.
