Other Sights for Artists’ Projects is pleased to present Grow, a series of walks, workshops and creative experiments in urban agriculture. Focusing on Vancouver’s growing identity as a sustainable city, Grow explores various notions of sustainability through the site of South East False Creek (SEFC).
Visit the Grow project site, known as the Bulkhead Urban Agriculture Lab, along the seawall walkway in SEFC, adjacent to Habitat Island in the Olympic Village.
The Bulkhead sits on the periphery of public parks undeveloped and bristling with industrial remnants of the past. Taking up the transitional nature of this site, the Grow project is installing a series of provisional platforms for growing herbs, vegetables, fruit and mushrooms. Many platforms have been installed and new ones are being added as the Lab grows and expands over the summer.
With support from the City of Vancouver’s 125th Anniversary Grants Program and the participation of the Government of Canada. Other Sight’s also gratefully acknowledges the Canada Council for the Arts, the Vancouver Park Board Neighbourhood Matching Fund and the Canon Community Urban Agriculture Grant.
