Welcome, Fair Funsters: A Guide

Update: Now that the “Ideas Fair” of June 1 is in the past, this guide is useful for preparing for Let’s Talk Richmond or establishing a good foundation on the Garden City Lands issue for any reason.


Consider starting with an analysis of the relevant set of display boards.

For an earlier analysis, an option is Garden City Lands Ideas Fair—mixed support. If you then go to an update on that analysis, you’ll see that the trend is favourable.

Since about four hundred of the 475 articles on this blog are about the Garden City Lands, you may wonder where to go from there. Try some of these:

Listening to the Lands = PARC, which illustrates a respectful sort of mindfulness toward the Garden City Lands. In the opposite view, the lands are a large blank square with no value until Ideas Fair participants create it.

Celebrating success and rebirth, which reviews the struggle to save the Garden City Lands that has made the park possible.

Gratefulness, insights into the positive values that have inspired citizens to work so hard to keep the Garden City Lands in the ALR.

Newly added: Sports fields . . ., actually from the Richmond Review website. This article thoroughly addresses the non-ALR use of sports fields, the biggest threat to the Garden City Lands becoming one of the world’s great parks for citizens and visitors. The link has been added because a new Richmond Review article shows that the threat is active.

What does our goal mean? The meaning of “steward the Garden City lands in the ALR for agriculture, recreation and conservation for community wellness.

An amazing opportunity to lead the world expresses the urban agriculture education vision that benefits the whole community. That’s related to this Kwantlen Polytechnic series.

The Sustainable Food Systems Park proposal is an inspiring early vision of the lands from Richmond Poverty Response and Richmond Food Security.

Wetland of International Importance is one of the ecological conservation visions for the lands.

Earth Awareness, which is lengthy but perhaps inspiring, is an example of a citizen coming to a view of the Lands that fills out his cultural identity.

Thank you for visiting. We hope this will help you in your quest. Email us if you want to particularly recommend including something in this guide.
