The Grassroots of Resiliency
This 4 hour tour showcases a broad range of green initiatives, weaves together elements of Vancouver's Greenest City Goals, and highlights the people power it takes to get all this good stuff done!
On this tour you will:
- see community gardens and urban farming, plenty of green architecture and urban planning,
alternative energy solutions, many beautiful views and inspiring projects come to life
- travel through a handful of neighbourhoods, a couple of light industrial and commercial districts you may be missing on the tourist path, or your local daily route
- learn from stories of the people behind all the positive change going on in Vancouver
"The Greenest city walking tour is an informative and healthy way to learn about Vancouver's green initiatives. Kathy brings energy, knowledge and fun to the 4 hour walking tour. This is a recommended activity for those who love walking in our beautiful city and gardens!" Robert Lee, Photographer
