Community Garden threatened by affordable housing in Vancouver:


On September 25th, 2023, the section of Cedar Cottage Community Garden on City-owned land was cleared in preparation for an affordable housing development.


Over the past 5 years, CCCG has made every effort to work with the City and Parks Board in seeking an alternative location for the garden. Despite 2018, 2019, and 2022 Council resolutions and a 2022 Parks Board resolution to "identify a new site in a nearby area", no alternative location has been found for the garden. 


This has left us gardening only on Translink property under the Skytrain tracks, which will soon be blocked from sunlight by a 7-storey building.


For a detailed summary of our efforts to relocate our garden please see our Relocation page.

CCCG engaged Urban Forest Solutions on September 11th, 2023 for an arborist report providing an inventory of all the trees that were subsequently lost to the development. A copy of this report can be found here.

Help save our community garden:

We were informed in April 2018 that the Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) was planning to build affordable housing on the current location of the T-section of Cedar Cottage Community Garden.

On September 25th, 2023, the garden T-section was cleared for the upcoming development, which is scheduled for completion in 2026. 

After more than five years we are still looking for a new home for our garden.

About Us:

Cedar Cottage Community Garden was established in 2008, in partnership with Vancouver Native Health Society, Vancouver Community Agriculture Network and Cedar Cottage Food Network. We acknowledge we are gardening on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, who have successfully stewarded these lands since time immemorial.

With over 60 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.
