Upcoming Projects

Redfern Park Garden

The Redfern Park Garden is envisioned to be South Jubilee’s outdoor community gathering place; a community garden with edible fruit horticulture, raised beds for demonstration and education, accessible and shared seating, areas for community building and a small covered area to enjoy nature in the rain.

The garden would begin to foster essential food literacy skills, educate on native horticulture, and build community resilience which is essential in such a diverse, urban neighborhood. In the long-term, we hope that this project would contribute to broader food security in our community.

With funding support from The Good City Project, including a voluntary amenity contribution from the proposed development at 1693 Fort Street, we look forward to continued progress on this important community project.

The South Jubilee Greening Committee needs $13,000 more in donations to complete the park construction.

Victoria Native Friendship Centre Playgrounds

VNFC’s mandate is to meet the needs of Aboriginal people by providing services and information designed to enhance traditional values and cultures of the Aboriginal Peoples. One such opportunity is the XaXe STELITKEL Childcare Centre: a licensed daycare that strives to provide safe, culturally relevant early learning. Currently, there are two under-utilized outdoor play areas—the park and backyard.

With a generous donation from Murdoch de Greeff Landscape Architects, we have redesigned both play spaces to better suit the needs of the children and caregivers. The new spaces will include designated areas of play; a sandbox, log flume, updated children’s log house, play canoe, and more.

With funding support from The Good City Project, the Victoria Native Friendship Centre is now taking the next steps to bring this project to life, including applying to available grants and seeking community donations.

$200,000 Goal

With the park plans now complete, VNFC requires approximately $145,000 to fund the landscaping and construction of the children’s playgrounds.
