Green Streets Boulevard Champion Wanted

The City of Vancouver Green Streets program has been flourishing for over a dozen years.  General Wolfe Elementary has a unique configuration with so many in one place.
 The size of the boulevards is too big for us to tend to (as many of the volunteer gardening parents have 'older' kids now).  Libby has done a good job of removing lots of prickly Nootka Rose from the east side of Ontario street - thanks Libby!

Be on the lookout for this spring anenome which is an early bloomer by the bench on Ontario Street.
If you would like to garden on the boulevards (or pick one), or know a neighbour interested in caretaking one of the boulevards, or become the Wolfe PAC liase with the City of Vancouver, contact Tarmara at

Master Gardener Project Closed

Parent Volunteers Wanted

Spring is already pushing up the bulbs on the Green Street Boulevards!
Before we know it, its time to get the seedlings started.

This year we need parent volunteers, interested teachers to take on a Garden Bed.
If a parent wants to participate in the Friday after school garden club, let us know.

In 2016 , we have an opportunity to join with SPEC (Society for the Preservation of Enviornental Conservation) who has worked with numerous VSB Schools for years. 

Despite heroic efforts of Dawn Dunkerly, Libby Taylor, Laura McCann, Julia Steward and a few others, we did not have enough parent involvement to keep the  Master Gardener project growing.  Thanks to everyone who helped out - the gardens were full last summer.
