Grow Your Own is a community project where students at Lord Kelvin Elementary School, their families and community members will build a planter and plant veggies to later bring home and care for over the coming months.
You are invited to bring a food dish to share at the potluck and previously loved clothing and books to swap. There will also be an option to make alterations and crafts from repurposed materials.
A night of community building and resource sharing.
A free walking tour of Mount Pleasant district.
On May 16 (or May 17 if it rains) we will clean-up the Community Pond, and on May 30 (or May 31 if it rains) we will plant around the pond. Please support us in any one of these days.
On June 13 we will have a Thank You BBQ around the Pond.
For any questions, please contact McGregorFunSocial@gmail.com.
Hope to see you there!

Note: Project was interrupted by City of Vancouver sewage repair on W 8th Avenue in August. Further, the City will replace the traffic circle and Green Streets plot with stop signs due to limited visibility and the accident risk level associated with vehicle/cyclist/pedestrian traffic at this intersection.
