Parishioners and neighbours dug up the front lawn of St David’s church in East Vancouver on August 10, in order to plant a community garden. The garden is a three-way partnership between St David’s, Nisga’a Ts’amiks Vancouver Society and Hastings-Sunrise Summer of Food, a non-profit community food security group. The purpose of the garden is to provide urban Nisga’a with an opportunity to grow food collaboratively and learn from the elders how to provide food throughout the year.
