SPEC coordinates and maintains gardens throughout schools in Vancouver. We also manage other growing spaces.
Cambie Square Communal Garden
The Cambie Square Communal Garden is a communally-run demonstration garden, located across from Vancouver City Hall whose volunteers have a keen interest in food, gardening, biodiversity, and sustainable systems.
Using techniques such as companion planting, vertical gardening, and square foot gardening, we partner with the City Hall Childcare Society, engaging children in garden care.

We are currently seeking gardeners (experienced or not) for the Spring to help plan, plant, and harvest the garden. We meet Sunday mornings rain or shine at the garden. Join other like-minded people and grow good food together!
