Capilano Community Garden – First Growing Season

Posted on: September 6th, 2013 by Heather

Some pics from the garden last week. It is looking very beautiful and very well taken care of.  The sunflowers are towering over, the green roof looks as fluffy as clouds and from what was once just an area of dirt – there is life!!!


Capilano University Community Garden – Green Roof

Posted on: April 23rd, 2013 by Heather

It  was truly a beautiful day as we installed the green roof on the tool shed that was built on April 13.

As part of the Earth Day celebrations and inauguration of the garden, we quietly installed the green roof methodically, attracting many onlookers and soliciting lots of interest.
What is a green roof? Will it damage the shed? What kind plants are those? Do you need to water it?
