‘Strathcona Community Gardens’ receives Vancouver Heritage Foundation plaque: ‘Places That Matter’
City Farmer initiated the Strathcona Community Garden project 28 years ago
The wording on the Vancouver Heritage Foundation plaque reads:
Dedicated Strathcona residents, gardeners and artists have transformed three acres of the former False Creek mud flats and city garbage dump into a flourishing community garden that has served as the model for a city-wide community garden program. Its apple orchard, herb garden and wetlands provide a much needed respite from city life.
