Our Crowdfunding Campaign

We are working hard to bring a unique learning experience to East Vancouver. And you can help! 

We're fundraising to keep our doors open while we work to meet the city's zoning and licensing requirements and make our space in Hastings Sunrise a permanent home. 

As a non-profit store and society, we are dedicated to intergenerational learning and curiosity. All the money we raise will help us get our space ready for offering workshops, including meeting all licensing and permit requirements. 

Can you help us reach our goal?  

Yes! We have Gift Certificates!  Buy online or in store...

The Learnary is a non-profit shop at 2643 East Hastings that sells resources for the curious - including home learners, unschoolers, lifelong learners and teachers of all kinds. We stock curiosity maker kits, books, games and things that make you go oh!…for all ages and stages. 

The Vancouver Learnary Society is dedicated to building community, supporting intergenerational learning and generating curiosity.

We operate The Learnary and we host learning events around town. We're also hoping to offer workshops in our new space soon!

When we say, we can’t do this without you, we really mean…we can’t do this without you! As a non-profit society, we depend on our members to help us grow and sustain our work. You are The Learnary.

As a non-profit, we rely on volunteers to make things happen! Those who contribute 12 hours of volunteer time a year become voting members and get to help us guide the direction of the society.

The Learnary is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh people. We are humbled by this history and grateful for our use of this land.
