Green Streets Program
320-507 West Broadway
Vancouver, BC V5Z 0B4
Green Streets gardens are planted on traffic circles and corner bulges.
We pay for the initial planting. As a volunteer gardener, you will work with us and your community to help the gardens grow during the year.
You can simply weed and water, or choose to add your own personal touch by adding your favourite plants, providing more colour and interest through the changing seasons.
If you're interested in tending a street garden, look for a sign in the garden. The sign will indicate whether the garden is available to tend, or if it's already being cared for.
Green Streets Vancouver captures some of Vancouver's most spectacular gardens in their full glory.
