Kitsilano community gardeN
Nov 4, 2017. The Chevron gas station on the northeast corner of 4th and Macdonald recently closed and was torn down. The lot on the opposite corner was also a gas station, and has sat unoccupied for many years (I heard the land has to sit for several years before someone can build on it, due to toxicity or safety?). I was pleasantly surprised to see that the former Chevron location has turned into a community garden. Must have only happened a few days ago and yet all the spots are apparently taken. Here is Shifting Growth's official website for the garden.

Gardens do have natural ingredients, it's true.
