Plant a Garden

Gardening with your little ones is a great way to celebrate springtime in Vancouver. You get outdoors together. They learn where their food comes from. And sometimes they’ll even sample veggies they would never try otherwise, because they grew the food themselves. With community gardens all across the city – and more being added all the time – it’s never been easier. Here are our tips for getting started – Gardening in Vancouver with Kids

Visit the Baby Animals

We recently told you about Maplewood Farm on the North Shore. It’s been a favourite destination for local families for more than 40 years, and for good reason. At this time of year there are baby animals around, too, which makes a visit extra-special. Read more here – Maplewood Farm: Family Fun on the North Shore
