Hastings Folk Garden at 117 East Hastings, right beside InSite in Vancouver Downtown Eastside (DTES)

Excited DTES residents prepare Hastings Folk Garden for new planting season!

Below is Jim speaking about prepping the soil, planting seeds and having events!


Our vision is: To create a welcoming, beautiful, safe place for community members to enjoy as a calm green space where they can engage in therepeutic activities; To link supportive programming from the Lifeskills Centre and greater PHS Community Service


In March come get involved in preparing the garden for the growing season: turn over the soil, get your hands dirty, help us build planter boxes, benches and vertical garden space out of recycled materials! Come ask at Lifeskills if you want to get involved: tel 604 678 8278

In April the garden will be open Noon – 3 Weekdays for community access!

Smudges are Ongoing!

Aboriginal Front Door cares for a Native Plant Garden within the space!

Past Events have included Sprouting Workshops and Outdoor Movies, look for these again in the summer!
