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.
Next Work Party:
Our work parties for 2024 are still to be scheduled.
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.
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:
