City Farmer information
Home of the Vancouver Compost Demonstration Garden, this fragrant, flower-strewn urban garden site is just a two-block walk from W 4th Ave. Divided into sections, including a biodiversity garden and climate change garden, you can learn about composting and water-efficient horticulture (check the website for tours and classes) or just suck up the flowerage as you wander around.
Staffed by chatty volunteers, this is a good spot for green-thumbed visitors. The site also adjoins a disused rail corridor that, on our visit, was being transformed into the new Arbutus Greenway Park , a 9km tree-fringed linear walkway.
