North Shore Neighbourhood House – The Edible Garden Project

The Edible Garden Project (EGP) is an award-winning program under the North Shore Neighbourhood House, with over an acre of gardens and farms tended to by volunteer community members, staff, teachers and students. EGP programs use food as a platform to transform community, address urban environmental and social issues, and empowers citizens of all ages through education, capacity building, and community connections.

Loutet Farm is a half acre urban farm on public parkland in the City of North Vancouver. This location is a large garden space, which makes it an excellent venue for hosting large volunteer community groups and tours. The site has excellent sun exposure, good parking, and is part of a well used neighbourhood park and trail system. This means that the community can connect with the space regularly and easily. An opportunity exists to improve and expand our bee garden at the farm, and this project would help us complete that. The user groups include: school children, neighbours of all ages, community volunteer groups, and park visitors.
