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.

Please come out on Saturday, October 5th (1-4 pm) to the Trout Lake Community Center (Lakewood Room) and let Parks Board know that you support creating a community garden in Trout Lake Park.

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

We have finished assigning plots for the 2019 season, but spaces may open up at any time throughout the year. 
If you'd like to add your name to the waitlist then please do so by clicking here or on the 'Join' button above.

Our next work party will be on Saturday, October 19th 11am - 3pm.
Please come and join us as we keep everything looking beautiful and continue to see the fruits of our labour. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

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
