YWCA Rooftop Food Garden

No. 4581 - 01 Sept 2010 - 12:38:32

Gastown, Vancouver

Five storeys above the streets of corporate Vancouver grows a garden that feeds a community. During a recent potluck lunch, with the ladies and gentleman of the finest aqua-fit class in the city, I was able to see how much is possible with vision, cooperation, and hard work. For myself, the pleasure in growing masses of scarlet runner vines, comes with the eating of the fresh picked, steamed, buttered, and seasoned beans; a memory from childhood summers in my mother's kitchen garden.
