Forget-me-not (Myosotis scorpioides)



The biggest problem local Vancouverites face is loneliness

Bee and bird populations are decreasing in Vancouver

93% of fruit and 46% of vegetables consumed in BC are imported from outside Canada

There is a raise in obesity, autism, learning disabilities and disconnect from nature in children

4/10 British Columbians are inactive, obese, overweight


Thousands of people are homeless and without basic nurturance and compassion in our streets

Thousands of elders are alone and poorly cared for in Vancouver


Rather than continuing to create anew, what can we do to distribute the resources that we already have?
