Helping Butterflies, Bees & the Environment

St. A's garden is very happy to be part of the Butterflyway Project, an initiative of the David Suzuki Foundation. We plant native and other plants that attract and help sustain our local butterfly and bee populations. Check back soon for Rev.

Wondering Where to Find a Book Box?

Book boxes - or little libraries - have popped up all over Vancouver during the past few years, offering the opportunity for all of us to share the gift of reading. Local artist, Kobie Gingras-Fox has created these booklets as a guide to where we can find book boxes throughout the city. Have a look:

PWRDF: Donations to A Light for Every Birth project being matched 1:1

Donations to PWRDF’s newest project are being matched dollar for dollar up to $100,000. Working with our partner EHALE and California-based We Care Solar, PWRDF is building on our previous work done in 2016 by installing 50 more solar suitcases in rural medical clinics. A solar suitcase is a wall-mounted unit that opens like a suitcase and includes phone charging ports, a portable headlamp and a fetal Doppler to monitor baby’s heartbeat that is connected to a roof mounted solar panel.
