Adopt a Free Plant Day

This event takes place on the traditional territories of the Qayqayt, Skwxwú7mesh, Tsleil-Waututh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm nations.

Creepers, Vines, Succulents, Trees, Poison Ivy, what do you think we’re talking about?


Come join us this October 11th at GardenWorks and provide a loving forever home to whatever plants are available in stock.

Adopt a Free Plant Day is a great opportunity to start budding friendships with both actual plants*, and queer and trans people who like plants*.

*Plant buds are available within our budget for the whole group
*Human buds are free


Mpowerment is a queer-centered, trans-inclusive, and gender affirming space for young adults (19 - 29 years old) to meet, make friends, and talk about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. We work to create safer spaces for all young people, including those of us living with HIV. 

This event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the Qayqayt, Skwxwú7mesh, Tsleil-Waututh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm nations.


GardenWorks is located off Kingsland Avenue, 2 blocks east of Holdom Avenue and within walking distance of Holdom Skytrain.

Wheelchair accessibility and washroom information coming soon*

Will you come?

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
