The George Pearson Centre is a long-term care facility for people with disabilities in Vancouver, BC. It is home to 120 residents living with physical disabilities and is part of Vancouver Coastal Health.

In 2009, the Farmers on 57th group, a project of Disability Alliance BC, began an agricultural project to transform one acre of the lush green space at George Pearson into community integrated gardens. The name “Farmers on 57th” comes from the location of George Pearson- just west of Cambie and 57th Avenue in Vancouver.

There are three parts to Farmers on 57th: the Therapeutic Gardens, Market Garden and Growing Eden garden.
