Burrard View Park food forest project

Partnering with Vancouver Urban Food Forest Foundation (VUFFF), we're installing a new food and culture community garden following recommendations outlined in the Local Food System Action Plan.

The food forest will:

  • Create a community hub providing opportunities to connect with others and foster a sense of community belonging through programs, workshops, and natural play features
  • Support climate action and biodiversity through the planting of trees, shrubs, and other edible and cultural plants
  • Include opportunities for Indigenous people to practice land care, harvesting, and ceremony, while also creating space for inter-cultural sharing
