Cambie Square Community Garden

The Cambie Square Community Garden is a located on the southwest corner of Cambie and 10th Avenue (see map below). Since 2020 it operates as a community garden with individual plots. Before that, it was a communally-run demonstration garden with shared plots. Gardeners  have different levels of experience but all share a keen interest in growing food, supporting biodiversity and promoting sustainable food systems. 


Some techniques employed in the garden include vertical gardening, companion planting, square foot gardening and mulching. We also incorporate flowering plants to encourage and increase the pollinator population in the garden. We have partnered with the City Hall Childcare Society in the past, engaging children in garden care.
