Wild Minds 2017 – Week 1

A group of 13 Britannia youth are discovering what urban wild means to them. For some it is creativity, others it is chaos, nature, animals, joy and what better place to explore this wildness theme but at Strathcona and Cottonwood Community Gardens. Year 2 of the Wild Minds summer garden program, a partnership between the Grandview Woodland Food Connection, Environmental Youth Alliance, and Evergreen BC, will be focusing on growing native plants and again, rewilding an area in the Strathcona Gardens all in an effort to better understand the importance of not only growing food in the city, but of creating wild spaces that support ecosystem and biological diversity. Thank you also to Evergreen Foundation and Blue Sky Properties as well as Metro Vancouver – Agriculture Awareness Grants for their generous funding.
