Event Description

Join Little Mountain Neighbourhood House and the Main Street Neighbourhood of Village Vancouver for the regular first Tuesday monthly potluck, this time with free seeds and plant seedlings for your edible garden on your balcony or in your yard.  

Potting soil and small pots will also be available for free, so jumpstart your indoor or outdoor food garden.  It is not too late, especially with our starter seedlings to transplant.  We will have many lettuces, asian greens, tomatoes, and possibly some herbs.

We will also show several short videos by PBS's The Victory Garden, GardenFork TV, and the Thrifty Gardener about transplanting seedlings, proper watering, and building a cold frame to extend the growing season.  

We hope to discuss how a city can begin to feed itself and enjoy fresh, healthy produce with zero carbon miles, no carbon footprint, and all while cleaning the soil and the air.  Can urban food gardening help to teach us about healthy food and about building community?

  • 6:00 PM - Potluck with time to select anything from our Seed Library and current Seedlings, and take a pot of soil home or transplant there.
  • 7:00 - 8:00 PM - Films and Discussion
