Responding to the City of Vancouver’s Greenest City Grant, Mitchell Reardon, Michael Manning and Randy Wetmore received a grant to build a series of benchlets for summer 2016. Consisting almost entirely of wooden pallets, the benchlets create seating and planter boxes in a fast, sustainable and cost-effective way. This tactical urbanism initiative will be piloted in Kitsilano, and in cooperation with local community gardens, several benches will be located along the Arbutus Corridor.
