Green Bloc Neighbourhoods – Dunbar Southlands

The Green Bloc Neighbourhoods project is a grass-roots initiative where neighbours work together to collectively reduce our ecological footprint through neighbourhood-based actions, such as building community gardens & pollinator pathways (increase plant-based meals); hosting park-based, street-based, and school-based fun/educational activities (such as walking & wheeling programs); and hosting zero-waste workshops and building sharing libraries. We focus on events and activities for families, particularly inter-generational activities where young kids and kids at heart are the focus.
