In March 2018, Wattle Tree Place won Vancouver's Downtown Association's award for the Best New Business of 2017.
A Magical, Thriving, Family-Friendly Hot Spot welcoming Community Minded Adults & Children with a Delicious Cafe, Holistic Healing Center & Weekly Activities!
In our stressed society where many feel marginalized and isolated, there is a beacon shining brightly on NE16th & C Street. Their success underscores a real need for a gathering place in downtown Vancouver. Their clients and fans keep expressing amazement and gratitude that such a people-friendly outpost is alive and thriving here.
Unfortunately, the Australian sisters who started with a huge vision for expansion do not own the property. It was purchased by a developer with plans to tear it down by the new year, to build yet another apartment complex.
Meanwhile, the sisters have been seeking other properties and will not give up their dream, manifesting still more of their ideal: a whole Wattle Tree campus, featuring not just expanded spiritual and holistic therapeutic opportunities, but also a guest house hostel for tourists passing through Vancouver.
If you believe a Community House of this nature is important in the re-development of downtown Vancouver - PLEASE sign our petition, write testimonials and let our collective voices be heard! We will gather signatures and take to The City Planers Offices, as well as Property Development Companies requesting their support to not only find a new home but to invest in our community's future.
