Spring Cleaning with Michael Sider

We are fortunate to have Michael Sider working with us to help document the many stories that unfold in the gardens and in the community over the course of a growing season. Michael not only produces amazing images and videos, he’s also great to have around while working the soil and tending the plants.

Here’s a particularly wonderful video he produced for the Vancouver Farmers Markets Society in collaboration with Campagnolo. I don’t recommend watching on an empty stomach.

And here are some images from our clean up in adjacent front-yard gardens in Mount Pleasant (courtesy of Michael Sider).
