“For the volunteers who came out April 12 to prepare the garden beds at David Thompson secondary school, it was about supporting environmental causes in any way they could.

Volunteer Barbara Bradbury said there’s a huge need for individuals to help out. “The Vancouver Park Board doesn’t have enough money,” she said. “They can’t hire enough people to do it and it’s labour intensive.”

Bradbury said she’s always been gardening. Growing up on a farm in Mill Bay, she has witnessed changes in the climate and ecosystem and believes the Earth needs as much support as it can get. “The natural environment is declining from all the [industrial, commercial and residential] development,” she said.

The David Thompson garden beds are a two-year-old initiative between Fresh Roots and the Vancouver School Board in a push for fresher produce in the cafeteria and food literacy skills in the students. Beside the gardens are an outdoor classroom with logs positioned around a chalkboard like an amphitheatre and a group of green picnic tables underneath shady trees.”
