As everyone knows, the Alma Garden is a temporary one, slated to run for the 2017 growing season only. We hope to continue the garden into 2018, but at this time, we don't yet know for sure. Look for an update in the coming months––fingers crossed.
There are many hardy plants that just love the cool fall weather. We have a solid 60+ days of growing left at the garden––why not take advantage with a couple rows of fall crops?
The garden is all set-up! Come by for the Garden Opening April 8th 10am-4pm!
The corner of Alma & 10th was once home to a service station (Esso), a financial institution (Toronto Dominion Bank), an auto shop (Gordon's Auto Imports) and a thrift store (Ye Olde Comfort Shoppe). Past Alma Street, Broadway takes over from 10th Avenue as one of Vancouver's major thoroughfares.
The Alma Temporary Community Garden is a temporary growing space in the Point Grey neighbourhood of Vancouver, BC, Canada. The garden is located at the corner of Alma St. and 10th Ave. West. The temporary growing space will be assembled in March 2017 and will have 100 community garden beds, seating, garden art and a fruit tree! This allotment garden is for community members to grow food and flowers. This temporary garden installation is managed by Shifting Growth
