Native Food Forest

With funding support from the City of Vancouver ‘s Neighbourhood Matching Fund, Tree Canada, and Park People.

Free the Fern Stewardship Society created a Native Food Forest along the Champlain Heights Trail in 2023. Thanks for the 204 volunteers, throughout the course of project, who helped with invasive removal and native planting.

What is a Food Forest?

A Native Food Forest is an area that is filled with plants that benefit humans, but also provide food for birds and insect pollinators.


Our Native Food Forest is planted along the beautiful Red Alder Trail in South Vancouver.

Past Events

Free the Fern organized 10 free public events as part of our Native Food Forest Project. These included outreach, stewardship and art events.
