City of Vancouver – Call for Expressions of Interest for Boulevard Fruit Trees

Would you and your neighbours like fruit trees on the boulevard in front of your house?

The City of Vancouver, the Vancouver Park Board, and CityStudio Vancouver students would like to help you plant fruit trees in your neighbourhood. We are looking to install pilot projects which will encourage fruit trees on Vancouver’s boulevards.

Residents or businesses with a boulevard adjacent to their property, and interested in having this project in their neighborhood are encouraged to apply. Groups of residents can apply to maintain the fruit trees and be the sole stewards of the site, or, can offer their boulevard to a local non-profit or community organization for care.

The cost of the initial planting (trees, soil, mulch, etc.) will be funded for a handful of pilot projects. Questions and completed applications can be sent to pbgreen@vancouver.ca. Applications are due February 10 2013, and successful projects will be planted in February/March 2013. If the pilot project is successful, we will consider additional projects in the future.
