GNH Clean Team
(Powered by the West End Business Improvement Association)

Gordon Neighbourhood House and the West End Business Improvement Association are proud to be launching the Clean Team.
The Clean Team will participate in general commercial sidewalk/street cleaning, graffiti removal, poster and sticker removal. An essential part of this work will include the recording and tracking of their findings in a litter audit. We plan to share this information with the community so that together we can work towards a long-term strategy for keeping our streets litter free.
Clean Team Crew Member Bill Farmer:

"I was very excited when the opportunity came along to be a part of the Gordon Neighbourhood House Clean Team Crew. I've lived in the West End of Vancouver for many years and I'm passionate about helping the community be the most spectacular neighbourhood in this beautiful city."
Seeds to Supper

When: Saturdays 4-7pm
Cost: Free with a GNH membership of $5

This drop-in program is tailored toward younger families with children 0-6 and those looking to enhance their food and wellness practices.  This program is an exciting opportunity for families to grow awareness, appreciation and connection to their food sources and engage in healthy life affirming activities. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure equity, sustainability and pleasure in the food we eat by acknowledging that we are connected with every other person in the circle of food production.  Also, this drop-in provides the unique combination of play and socialization while making music and doing arts/crafts activities throughout the month.
