The Britannia Wild Minds Project – Day 2. Located in the inner city of East Vancouver amongst warehouses is Vancouver’s Strathcona Community Gardens, a hidden oasis among amidst the urban concrete. A group of 10 Britannia Secondary Students are helping to rewild a section of the gardens by planting indigenous plants that will eventually grow into an urban forest that was previously overgrown with Himalayan Blackberry, providing new habitat for various animal species. The youth are loving the gardens with so much to expire including orchards, community gardens, pond areas, bee hives, and existing wild areas.
This project is a partnership between the Grandview Woodland Food Connection, Environmental Youth Alliance and the Evergreen Foundation, with funding generously provided by Evergreen Foundation and Seeds of Change.
