Our Community Needs a Garden

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

Cedar Cottage Community Garden will remain where we are until at least the end of the 2021 growing season. Some time after that the site will 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.

Parks Board is planning to hold phase 2 of the public consultation, followed by a revised draft plan, in 2021. Please check their website for further updates at vancouver.ca/john-hendry.

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.

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
