Red Alder Trail
Our Native Food Forest will be planted on city land, in a 360m2 (18mx20m) area, adjacent to the Red Alder Trail, which is part of the Champlain Heights Trail System in South Vancouver.
As of February 2023, the site is mainly covered by a dense thicket of invasive Himalayan blackberry and English ivy. There are also some trees on the Southern and Eastern edge of the site.
To prepare the site to become a Native Food Forest, Free the Fern will be organizing invasive pulls on the first Saturday of each month in 2023.
There is a paved, accessible trail running along both the Eastern and Western edge of the site. To the South of the site, there is a grassy area and public playground with bench seating.
