Our friends at the North Shore Community Garden Society are excited to announce their newest community garden in Lynn Valley! Please share widely.
The North Shore Community Garden Society has secured funding for their latest garden at 3590 Mountain Highway, in Lynn Valley.
Garden plots at the Lynn Valley Lions Community Garden will be available to any District of North Vancouver (DNV) resident. DNV residents interested in applying for a plot can read the instructions below:
Please note: if you have a preference for the Lillooet or future Garibaldi community gardens, you can still become a member of the Lynn Valley Lions Garden. If you take a plot at the Lynn Valley Lions Garden your name would remain on the Lillooet and/or Garibaldi wait-lists. When a plot at Lillooet or future Garibaldi community gardens is offered to you, you will then need to make a decision about staying in the Lynn Valley Lions Garden or switching to the newly offered plot.
How to get a plot:
Option 1: Volunteer to help us build the garden! All volunteers will get priority for a plot. If there are more volunteers than plots, we will hold a random draw for a plot from the list of volunteers.
- Minimum of 4 hours volunteer time (ex. digging, moving soil, constructing the garden beds, planting, etc.)
- No gardening or construction skills are required to participate, but please let us know if you do have specific expertise or skills (ex. carpenter)
- We will make an effort to provide volunteer activities for all skill levels and abilities – please contact us if you have questions.
Volunteer Days are: July 18, 19, 20. If you cannot make it to these work parties, you can send a proxy on your behalf. If you put your name down to volunteer we will contact you closer to theses dates to confirm exact times, but some time periods will be during the day, some evening.
Option 2: Submit your name to our Lynn Valley Lions Garden list. This is a good option if you are unable to volunteer to help build the garden, but does not guarantee you will receive a plot. Once all volunteers have been assigned a plot we will hold a random draw for the remaining plots from this list. If we don’t have any plots left over, we will still hold a random draw to determine the order of names on the waiting list.
Please submit your name, address, telephone #, and email address and whether you plan to volunteer or not by July 4. Send this information to: lynnvalleylionsgarden@gmail.
