Event Description

NEW DATE/TIME: Sunday, June 11 10 am - noon

Village Vancouver ElderGreens presents this workshop covering the basics of planning, preparing and starting a food garden, with an emphasis on summer growing. You'll learn some simple techniques from Rhiannon Johnson for starting plants indoors and in the garden, tailored to your space. Be rewarded with the taste of freshly grown veggies this season! We'll have a VV Community Seed Library present where you can take, swap or donate seeds.

Cost: $0-10 suggested donation. Free for Seniors (50 and over).


Register (by 5 pm Friday, June 2nd): with ross@villagevancouver.ca or online http://www.villagevancouver.ca/events/introduction-to-organic-gardening-4.

Our healthy, local food residency at the Strathcona Park Field House offers a variety of affordable food and community based programming at the fieldhouse, Strathcona Community Centre, and elsewhere.

Organized and led by seniors, VV ElderGreens brings seniors, youth and others together to share food & gardening skills and wisdom through workshops and other activities. All ages welcome, please contact us if you're interested in getting involved.
