In partnership with Union Baptist Church, local artist/urban farmer Meei Ling Ng has been creating the UBC Garden of Eden with art installation that provide fresh vegetables, flowers and fruits to the church soup kitchen.

The project has begun connecting the residents of the neighborhood and building community. People curious about the goings stop in and soon become volunteers. They’ll get their hands dirty building the growing beds, learn about vegetable growing and quite often leave with some of the fresh harvest. The installation not only producing food but also beauty in the neighborhood. Often, people walk by were drawn by the church pews art installation and taking pictures.

The collaborations and programing already initiated point to the potential for this project. Vegetables grown in the highly productive beds have gone into meals prepared in the UBC kitchen for their free meal program (soup kitchen). Children with parents from the neighborhood have come to enjoy a Storytime in the garden put on by staff of a neighborhood library. While in the garden, the children also learned about growing vegetables, sampled some right out of the beds and helped harvest tomatoes and eggplant for the soup kitchen. Some of the activities and programming using the garden as a venue have been initiated including the garden community art program and fitness programs from the nearby YMCA.

For neighborhood residents who want to stay local while having a private event, the garden with its meadow and orchard, would be an attractive green venue.
