Peter Ladner, many moons ago, suggested that Vancouver set a target of 2010 garden plots by the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver when he was on council.
The city reached that goal, without fanfare, at some point.
I say yahoo. I looooove community gardens.
They make the city look gorgeous and human and taken care of. (Who ever thought the former gas station at Burrard and Davie could be such a thing of beauty? And the gardens along the rail tracks near Fourth are stunning.)
They bring people together with their neighbours.
And the arugula I had from Danielle’s Mount Pleasant community-garden plot recently was scrumptious.
