Highlights

  • 40 volunteers contributed 120 hours!
  • Of the 40 volunteers 28 had never volunteered at a farm
  • Volunteers came from Richmond, North Vancouver, Vancouver, Langley, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Burnaby and Surrey
  • Volunteers harvested 95 radish, 81 beans. They moved compost, weeded veggie beds (i.e. carrot beds) and harvested medicinal plants (e.g. chamomile)

The Lower Mainland Green Team are a group of people from all over the Lower Mainland who get together to help Metro Vancouver Parks, municipalities, BC Parks, charities, non-profit organizations, societies, stewardship groups and watershed groups tackle environmental issues that need co-operation and teamwork to get done. We also volunteer at farms to promote local sustainable agriculture. Gloves and tools will be supplied as well as refreshments! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. If you care about the environment and local food security this is the group for you!
