Event Description

This workshop has been cancelled due to lack of sufficient pre-enrolment. (Several days are required to grow sprouts for the workshop.) If you're interested in taking this workshop in the future, please contact Ross at ross@villagevancouver.ca.

Village Vancouver presents Grow Your Own Sprouts and Grass. Sprouts are one of the most concentrated sources of nutrients on Earth. They can be grown in any climate, at any time of the year, in a limited space, for cent per liters. Registered Nutritional Practitioner and Chartered Herbalist Nikoo Boroumond will show you how to grow your own sprouts at home with no special equipment. Bring a jar if you want to take some stuff home to start right away.

VV will have a seed library present - if you come a little early, you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.

Cost: $15. Workshop fee includes cost of materials ($4). Pre-register by January 24th, so we know how many sprouts to grow for the workshop.

50% Subsidies on the non-materials portion ($11) of the workshop fee are available to low income residents of Vancouver with a Leisure Access Card. For details on how to apply, please contact Strathcona CC or visit http://vancouver.ca/parks/rec/lac/index.htm.

Part of VV's Winter 2015 Cultivating Food, Cultivating Community Series at Strathcona Community Centre.
