    New to the garden?

    The Cambie Square Communal Garden is a communally-run demonstration garden, located on the southwest corner of Cambie and 10th Avenue. There are no individual plots. Rather, all volunteers share in the planning, planting, harvesting and maintenance of the garden. Our volunteers come from many backgrounds; some are experienced gardeners and some are new to gardening. We all share a keen interest in growing food, maintaining biodiversity and creating sustainable systems.
