You’ll be fully active in creating the fermentation (wear clothes you don't mind preparing food in), and take home a jar customized to your level of spice-tolerance. Bring any of the following items that you can: cutting board, large knife, kitchen scissors, large bowl or tub, 500mL wide-mouth jar and lid. $7 materials fee. Instructor: Alyssa Kohlman.

Aberthau Garden Project 2015-17.The garden is located behind the Mansion, just off of NW Marine Dr.
Hosted by Village Vancouver, the Aberthau Garden Project 2015-17 includes VV's Demonstration Permaculture Garden, the West Point Grey Preschool Garden, and (following last year’s Sunflower Garden) the Pumpkin Patch, a new art/garden project by Aberthau artists-in-residence: LocoMotoArt Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein.
Emphasizing regenerative, low maintenance and moisture retentive permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, and saving open pollinated seeds, last year Village planted annual and perennial veggies, fruits, herbs and flowers, including pollinator attractants. Offering fun and inclusive social, educational, and cultural activities for community members, including free or low cost workshops, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners, providing a learning experience for everyone.
