Cypress Community Garden had help from the first year programme at UBC-Land One–an integrated programme in Forestry and Land and Food Systems. Student Volunteers worked on pruning back shrubs and summer growth to get ready for winter
A summer camp group with students aged 6-8 years old visited Cypress Community Garden on July 14th. Two garden Coordinators-Chelsea Sweeney and Ken Naumann-demonstrated the links between the insects and bugs in the area, and the garden crops—apples, rhubarb ,and vegetables like zucchini and peas, and herbs
Daffodils have blossomed around a new area protecting the fruit tree at Section Two. In this late Spring of March and April, this has become the most photographed spot along the Garden. Great work Natalia !!!!!
Leave the Dead leaves: its important to NOT rake up leaves right now because pollinators are wintering under them.
