Evergreen: Helen Beynon (@EvergreenBC / @HBeynon)
Helen Beynon has been the Community Development Coordinator at Evergreen BC since the spring of 2011 – in that time, she has learned more than she ever imagined possible about composting, garlic growing, and English ivy removal. Her job rewards her with new surprises every day, and she especially loves seeing kids expressions when they get to harvest their first zucchinis. Before coming to Evergreen, Helen worked on various sustainability and community development projects in South America and the South Pacific. When not playing in the dirt professionally, Helen can be found climbing rocks in Squamish.
Project Limelight Society: Maureen Webb (@ProjLimelight)
Sisters Maureen Webb and Donalda Weaver founded Project Limelight Society to give back to the East Vancouver community where they were raised. In July 2012, they launched East of Main Cafe which supports Project Limelight, both financially and through a food security program, providing healthy meals and snacks to their young participants. Project Limelight Society is a free performing arts program for children in Vancouver’s DTES and surrounding areas. East of Main Cafe is a social enterprise, and 100% of its profits go towards supporting Project Limelight Society. Project Limelight operates out of their new location, above East of Main, and at Strathcona Community Centre, a few blocks away.
