Eat Vancouver: Local Garden, North America’s First Vertical Farm

Update: May 2017 – Local Garden closed due to high overhead costs. We were sad to see the project go!

La Taqueria: Life is better when you taco

La Taqueria 322 W. Hastings or 2549 Cambie or… on W 4th Avenue, conveniently parked beside Whole Foods!
