Alas, it's safe to say that summer is behind us. But for those who love wool, and IPA, and pumpkin-flavoured everything, October truly is the most magical month. Here's to giving thanks for the simple ingredients that made our gardens grow all summer: sunlight, soil and water.
It's that time of the year again––cool mornings, a break from the smoke, orange tints in the tree leaves. Lucky for us, fall is also a time of bounty and ripeness. Tomatoes, squash and corn are coming into their full colour and sweetness, and the soil is still warm enough to germinate those same cold-hardy seeds you first planted way back in the spring.
The 4th & Macdonald Temporary Community Garden is a temporary growing space in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver, BC, Canada. The garden is located at the corner of West 4th Ave. and Macdonald. The temporary growing space was assembled in October 2017 and has 100 community garden beds, in addition to seating, garden art and a community noticeboard! This allotment garden is for community members to grow food and flowers.
