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. 

The building permit for the new development is currently under review.

As a result of our impending displacement, in 2018 we applied to Parks Board to create a community garden within John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park. 

At the Parks Board meeting on Monday May 16, 2022, the commissioners unanimously voted in favour of adding an amendment to the Trout Lake renewal plan motion. It reads: "THAT the Parks Board asks staff to explore inclusion of community garden plots in the renewal plan." 

At the beginning of the meeting, Parks Board staff reported that they had received the following communication in regards to the Trout Lake renewal plan: 3 people were in support of the overall plan, 3 people were opposed to the plan, and 170 people were in support of a community garden in Trout Lake Park.

Although it is yet far from a commitment, it is a step in the right direction. We will be contacting Parks Board to see what the next steps are. 

Thank you to everyone who spoke at the Parks Board meeting, sent an email to the commissioners, spread the word, and supported our efforts thus far. 

It is through our collective effort that we were able to achieve this. Thank you again!


The garden is now full for 2023.

We will contact those on the waitlist as plots become available.
