Native Plant Demonstration Garden

Native Plant Demonstration Garden

Throughout summer 2018, EYA will engage local youth to create a new native plant demonstration garden in Strathcona Community Garden, an inner city garden space.

This 9 x12 metre demonstration garden and community learning space will showcase perennial native plants native to coastal British Columbia organized in four guilds: shade, edgelands, food forest, and pollinator. It will include educational signage, a bee hotel, and an art installation, and will be used as a teaching and learning space to increase public awareness of the benefits of native plants to urban biodiversity and climate change mitigation.

EYA has a long history of successfully creating new wild spaces in the city of Vancouver, including community gardens, community orchards, and wildlife habitat gardens. This project builds on and continues that tradition.
