So long... Farewell...KCG

What a beautiful journey it has been in the Kitsilano Community Garden - our urban oasis. A gift in our lives.

Biscuit - Co-Director Kits Community Garden

It has been many years since the last post - and as the fabily is moving to a different community it is time to officially say so long... farewell...and goodbye for now. 

Our Happy Place

Always birds

Kits Community Garden has been in our lives for nigh on 30 years. So many happy memories created in that space that will never be forgot! Through thick and thin the garden gave us so much - the bounty of flowers and food - a respite - the friendships of those past and present, all of whom cared for the garden.

It has been a privilege for us to contribute to the legacy of Kits Community Garden and we know we leave it in good hands. So long for now!

Boo! Last work party of the 2016 season!

On old hallow's eve thinking about another season gone by and that the garden is going to ground once again. It happens every year but each year it seems more poignant - is that age?! This time of year is gorgeous in the garden because you get to observe the full cycle of the perennials and once again see the form and space in the garden when the abundance of the fall harvest comes to an end... and the golds, browns and exquisite decay starts to take over. Take a moment... don your gumboots and get out in the garden now to observe this time of year's special beauty... rake a few leaves if you feel so inclined...and give thanks for our beauteous Kitsilano garden and all that it provides.

Gardening under the Full Moon

It was a wonderful evening in September at one of our last work parties of the 2016 season. The full moon was out and as the evening came to a close as it was getting dark (already!!) it was another opportunity to realize how blessed we are to have this beautiful space to grow organic food and flowers. A few images from the evening - looking good people!

Lovely Energy at our August Workparty!

What a lovely evening in the garden on Wednesday night - such good energy which led to getting a whole bunch of things done in the most pleasant of ways! A few images from the evening...
