Event Details

Meet near the Marpole Bus Loop, S. W. Marine Drive and Hudson Street near the C. P. Rail Tracks. It's a very easy walk west to the Fraser River Park

The many tidal salty islands and diked fertile river-flats all along the North Arm of the Fraser River were once Vancouver's Food Basket. Now they are now just parking lots and cement plants. As Vancouver completes the River Side Greenway from West Southlands to Boundary Road, there are opportunities to rediscover our hidden farmland from the past 130 years from under the industrial rubble of the present.

This tour of a Riverside Greenway with a history of great Food Gardens is an opportunity not to be missed! This fertile river land is just waiting now for our gardening shovels to turn it over and grow good things once again.

 

Our children the "Urban Gardeners of the Future" are very welcome on this walk.

By donation.


Rain or shine.


On this walk Terry Slack is our leader, river tillerman, gardener and local historian.

Terry is a retired fisherman who grew up on the North Arm. He is a community historian, a naturalist, an activist and a salmon person. He has a never ending love o the North Arm of the Fraser River and has worked hard over the years to save the natural environment of the Fraser River Estuary and beaches around Vancouver.

 

NOTE: "Earth Walks" are created by community leaders for the False Creek Watershed Society - a non profit group. We are very lucky to have these amazingly knowledgeable people lead us. We would love to have you join us. We ask that you try and register for the walks if there is a good chance you will be able to join us so we know how many are coming. Thanks and hope to see you there! 

Apologies that the newsletter stated these events are free. This year any donations we receive will be offered to the leaders and publicity.
