Healthy Local Food Fieldhouse Residency Program
The Healthy Local Food Fieldhouse Residency Program helps organizations engage with Vancouver residents to grow and share food.
Organizations get fieldhouse spaces in Vancouver parks at no charge to provide public programs and develop projects with our city's diverse communities over three years.
The program is run by the Vancouver Park Board and supports these initiatives:
2015 – 2017 residency organizations and projects
