Intergenerational Garden

The Intergenerational Garden is located at 22527 121 Ave. in Maple Ridge. It is a neighbourhood based initiative that brings together children, teens, seniors and the wider community in shared learning. In the garden, senior and adult volunteers teach students how to grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and berries.
