Deeper Roots Program

Connect Yourself To The Land

Gordon Neighbourhood House offers Deeper Roots, an educational gardening program that provides opportunities to connect with the land and deepen our understanding and relationship with nature.

We will explore how to grow food, plants and medicines in ways that care for both humans and the earth. We will develop a practice of gratitude and awareness that will shift how people look at growing food and the natural communities around them.

Join us for weekly drop-in garden sessions and nature-based activities and walks. Once a month we will also offer a multi-lingual session in the garden. All ages and levels of garden experience are welcome. Be prepared to experiment and learn together!


All sessions will take place in the West End neighbourhood of Vancouver. Locations will vary between each session. Once you have registered for a particular session, we will contact you with the meeting location, safety guidelines and what to wear/bring 1-2 days before the session.


Contact Joey at if you have questions or concerns about accessibility.


Each session will have a max of 5 participants. We will be registering participants on Eventbrite only (please don’t email to register).

We would like to offer the opportunity for as many different people to participate.

If you’re interested in multiple sessions, please sign up for one or two first, and allow others a chance to register before signing up for additional sessions. If a particular session is full, join the waitlist.

If you’re bringing a child or youth, please register them and indicate their age in the registration form.
