THE EXPLORERS URBAN GARDEN PROJECT, begun in 2009, is a community garden focused on environmental gardening, recycling, composting,food security, urban greening and quality of life.
This program offers children enrolled in our childcare programs a chance to connect with their food sources. With virtually limitless opportunities to provide programming on environmental, cultural, urban planning, social responsibility, food security and healthy living, the Explorers Urban Garden Project has long-range and far reaching impacts on community development andquality of life, not only for our program participants and their families, but for park users and partner organizations.
The garden is located on the banks of the mighty Fraser River, adjacent to the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation Burial Grounds and the Museum itself, marks the beginning of urban development for the North as the original site of the Hudson's Bay Post.
