Wow. After all that, our landlord has sent a crew to rip up the boulevard right now. So awesome.

My home is no longer my home.

UPDATE (11:36 a.m.) This sucks so much because we’ve always had an incredible relationship with our landlord. Always been supportive and kind and patient with our hippie ways. The Farmhouse is so appreciative of our landlord.

The City of Vancouver has been communicating with our landlord on this issue without including us in the discussion and I have no idea what was said between the two parties. It totally feels like the City has completely sabotaged our relationship with our landlord and it’s a punch in the gut to know he’s angry with us.

I can understand our landlord’s position 100 percent but we still have until May 15 to negotiate with our neighbours … and we only had one more to talk to.

We were so close to winning this fight.

Ander called to let me know that there’s nothing left of the boulevard garden anymore. They managed to save some of the plants but they might not recover.

And now I am broken.

UPDATE (12:13 p.m.) Max called to let me know Ander spoke to the landlord. Managed to smooth things over somewhat. Landlord did leave some poppies growing in the boulevard next to the tree but the rest is levelled.

However, the rest of the yard will NOT be touched. That in itself is a massive, massive victory.

Damn, I wish I had photos right now. So glad I took pictures last night.

Also, the Museum of Vancouver mentioned us today in their blog! I’m totally stoked that the issue is out there and other people are just as interested in food security issues as we are. Greater good has come from this. We’ve found new community. We’re raising awareness. And in a few months, we’ll have food.
