One-Percent For The Planet

Urban Greenspace

From community gardens in Kitsilano and Stanley Park to greenways along the Fraser River, urban greenspace is critical to building sustainable, healthy communities in the Lower Mainland.  And SPEC has always, and will continue to be, vocal supporters of more urban greenspace.

In the early 1980s SPEC supported City Farmer in creating the Vancouver Compost and Demonstration Gardens on the grounds of the SPEC Building. SPEC volunteers also established the Maple and Cypress Community Gardens which have become local Vancouver landmarks.  Since then volunteers have started the Cambie Square Communal Garden and SPEC's Rooftop Container Garden.

In 2003, SPEC supported the West End Residents Association and the Stanley Park Ecology Society in establishing a new Community Flower Garden in Stanley Park.

SPEC continues to seek ways to develop a vision for the Arbutus Corridor that includes cycling and pedestrian paths, community gardens and passenger-friendly streetcars.
