Not quite guerilla gardening

BC Ferries employee Wing Sun's wonderful little garden on the concrete wingwall wedged between berths two and three at the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal.

As ferries load and offload on either side of him, he sprouts seeds, tends his plants, creates garden art out of found objects discarded by travellers, and paints designs in praise of nature on available outdoor walls. All done on his own time and dime during his coffee breaks and lunch hours, it's a lovely oasis in the otherwise quite unlovely ferry terminal.
Thank you, Wing Sun, and to BC Ferries for seeing the value in his labour of love.

That garden has always fascinated me. Thanks for the lowdown, Lady Alison . . . .

I think they should hire him as Captain of the Gardens for all ferry terminals.
