This year’s Vancity Member Day falls in the middle of Green Month at Science World, a month of exhibits highlighting sustainability activities in our community.
Science World’s Green Month, which runs from Tuesday, April 22nd to Wednesday, May 21st, features exhibits and activities that celebrate environmental awareness and sustainability. For Green Month, Vancity is cowpowering the lights on Science World’s dome and is also offering tours of its rooftop Skygarden on Vancity Member Day. The Skygarden allowed Vancity to donate 102 pounds of vegetables in 2012 to the Potluck Cafe Society, providing food to low-income residents in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
