Gardening Therapy Program

Dear Food First-ers: We want to let you know about a great program looking to expand in our community! As you might know, Vancouver Eco-Village has started a Permaculture Gardening Program in Burnaby. They are also looking to expand their Garden Therapy Program.

Through this program, Vancouver Eco-Village is partnering with Spectrum Society, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and posAbilities to provide opportunities for their participants to get involved in gardening activities and to benefit from the many emotional and physical benefits that come from interaction with nature as well as a chance to connect with other members of the community. 

This is where you come in! The Garden Therapy Program is looking for additional gardening sites. Teams of 2-3 volunteers from the organizations mentioned are available to assist gardeners with watering, weeding and dead-heading. 

Interested?! We hope so. Please email Vancouver Eco-Village directly to find out more information or how you get involved.
