What do you do with a rotting wooden planter on the boulevard? Mike & Brian applied for and received a Neighbourhood Small Grant to build a raised edible garden around it.

Heading off to Home Depot one Sunday morning they bought the supplies & began construction. The roots of the 2 large trees caused a bit of a problem but another neighbour donated bricks & cement to level the ground. Many neighbours stopped by to help and plant.

Today many neighbours come by with bowls to collect some of the many herbs that are growing and the fellows have given away much kale and chard. The tomatoes are ripening and it looks like it will be a bumper crop! Thank you Vancouver!
