Coming soon: Saving the neighbourhood series

Coming soon – Saving the neighbourhood
Soon – over the holidays in December 2017, I’m going to post articles and short pieces I’ve been writing for the past few years about my neighbourhood.

It’s Richmond’s South Slough Heritage District – east of Steveston, running from Steveston Highway south to the Dyke and the Village of Finn Slough, and from No. 2 Road east to No. 5 Road.

I was born and grew up not far from here, and my husband and I own a small hobby farm – more of a large garden – which includes the 1935 Jacobson house.

In the past I’ve written a series of Saving the Neighbourhood pieces, including:
Saving the neighbourhood: who throws garbage in paradise

Saving the neighbourhood: industrial land encroaches on farmland

Saving the neighbourhood: against the odds: small scale farming in Richmond

Saving the neighbourhood: Ray Galawan stops dumping on farmland

Saving the neighbourhood: hunters: the City listens

Saving the neighbourhood: hunters back in the field

Saving the neighbourhood: the proposed Massey tunnel replacement

Saving the neighbourhood: rising water
