Britannia Urban Garden was blessed and named Ian Marcuse writes about it here:
We wanted to give the BUG a proper Coast Salish name. The students were asked to think of what the garden meant to them. Words like life, beauty, respect, growth, appreciation, and change came to mind. Two names were finally taken to a vote – Beautiful life and Transformed Life (the garden used to be a rather empty unused space). The vote was a tie and came down to a single tie breaker vote. The decision was Transformed Life – or Nexways wa lh7áynexw.
the women are givers of life. they used cedar boughs dipped in water and volcanic soil to sprinkle the garden.
the final drawing featured a round garden bed, wildflower bed for pollinators, bees, espalier and orchard. these were all built according to the ideas of the youth designers.
