Our Community Needs a Garden


We hope to create a community garden within John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park. We need your help!

The site of Cedar Cottage Community Garden will soon be developed for social and affordable housing: the urgent need for which our garden both recognises and supports. But we also need to preserve space for gardening within our community, as it brings a multitude of benefits, from physical, mental, and social to environmental.

For this to happen we need you to express your support during the public consultation on Trout Lake Park's master plan.

The Parks Board online survey is now closed, but you can still sign up for stakeholder workshops (vancouver.ca/john-hendry) and there will be a second public open house in early 2020. In the meantime, if you'd like to help further in our efforts to relocate our community garden please send an email to relocate@cedarcottagegarden.org.

Please visit: http://www.cedarcottagegarden.org/relocation, or click on the Relocation tab above, for further information.



Our last work party for 2019 was on November 17th, but we'll post the next upcoming work party date once the schedule for 2020 has been decided.




We'll be contacting people on our waitlist in early 2020 in regards to plot availability. 
If you'd like to add your name to the waitlist then please do so by clicking here or on the 'Join' button above.



With over 100 garden plots and extensive common areas, Cedar Cottage Community Garden offers a variety of micro-climates and growing conditions to gardeners of all ages and abilities. We promote food security and provide space for growing in a city where green space is at a premium. This is a place where people welcome each other, look out for each other's plots, and learn from each other. 

We are located at Victoria Drive and Hull Street in Vancouver, B.C.  For more information, please send us an e-mail at Contact@CedarCottageGarden.org.

Some of our goals include:
  • to promote food security
  • to provide space for growing in the city where green space is at a premium
  • to create a sense of community and connections within the neighbourhood
  • to create a safe, welcoming space for neighbours to gather and spend time
  • to share knowledge about growing


Cedar Cottage Community Garden would like to thank the following organisations for their generous support and funding in the creation, nurturing, and growth of our garden:
