Open Stage at Cedar Cottage Garden

Shadows and shapes make their way
Under the skytrain tracks, to the big Red "A"

Complete strangers coming together

Each with our own reasons to dream

About growing food in this place

We are fighting against frustration
and learning about patience
Understanding that
it takes just as long to build community
As it does to make a garden.

The 2nd monday of each month is Open Stage at Cedar Cottage Garden. Bring a poem, song or story to share: 6-8 pm, everyone is welcome!
