COVID-19

Members are reminded to follow the provincial guidelines:

In addition:

    • Bring your own gloves and, if possible, tools from home to avoid having to open the shed

    • If you open the shed wipe the lock and any tools used with alcohol based hand rubs (ABHR), available in the shed

    • If you use a hose wipe the tap and hose nozzle after use

    • If possible, bring the necessary supplies from home (ABHR, water, soap, towels, etc.) for cleaning your hands and any shared tools used

    • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds

Work Party

Winter is coming! And we'll be hosting a work party on Sunday, October 18 (10 am - 2 pm), the penultimate work party for 2020, in order to prepare the garden for it. This will include a pruning workshop at 10:30am after which we'll prune our collection of fruit trees.

We will continue to observe the COVID measures as described above.

There will be no food or drinks provided at the work parties, but feel free to bring your own.

Disinfectant spray/wipe will be provided.

Join

The garden is now full for 2020, but if you'd like to be wait-listed please click here or on the 'Join' button above.

We'll be in contact when space becomes available. We occasionally have plots become available throughout the year.

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.

Parks Board was planning to hold their second public open house on the master plan on April 4th at the Trout Lake Community Centre, including "park tours to review preliminary draft recommendations". This has now been postponed as a result of the current restrictions around COVID-19. 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
