Food & Garden Programs
The Hastings Community Learning Garden, right next to the community centre, is where we grow food for some of our programs and educate neighbours from preschoolers to seniors on topics of nutrition, gardening, and sustainability.
Our Mission: To increase the capacity & connection of the Hastings-Sunrise community through empowering food & garden programming.
Our Vision: The Hastings-Sunrise community will be an active player in helping Vancouver become a global leader in urban foods systems through strengthening our food & garden skills to create a community connected through growing & sharing our own food.
As we reintroduce programs, we are looking for your feedback! Please fill out our short survey here.
