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

Transportation

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

7 discussions

Housing

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
