Event Description

Join us for a community "barnraising" in transforming a property using Permaculture design principles. Last year close to 25 people participated in converting a Kits front lawn near the beach into a Village Vancouver Permaculture food forest. This will be our 2nd Kits Village project.
June's Kits Blitz garden party will be held at a home near 5th and Arbutus, and and we'll be working on a front yard and a blvd. and focusing on medicinal plants and flowers. VVer Nick Grabovac will facilitate. Nick is a Permaculture Designer and founder of Vancouver Permaculture Meetup.
Please RSVP. Everyone welcome - it's fun, it's educational, and we feed you!
Supported by a Green Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation.
(By the way, we're always looking for more locations in Kits Village and elsewhere to do Permaculture blitzes.)

Update: Currently, over 20 people have confirmed - what a great response! If you're planning on participating, please RSVP right away, so our hosts know how much food to make.

That was real nice today. Sun, soil, plants and people. What more could you ask for? ... hard apple cider ;) I'm working on that...maybe next time.

Excited to see how it goes. Have a wonderful day, sorry I won't be joining, I've volunteered to take care of my friend's baby for the day.

What is the address?

Hey Daryl (and everyone),

Bring your shovel and rake.

Everyone - if you have a shovel, bring it. We could also use a couple heavy rakes.

Hi, I can help from around 1230 onwards but I've got plans in the morning time. What's the difference between a skunk and a garden hoe? One stinks and the other works.

Comment by Daryl Armstrong on June 23, 2012 at 4:37pm

Should I bring my shovel? rake? or ...?
Camera, gloves and notebook for sure:)

10-12 people are participating so far.

There's room for more participants - but please RSVP soon so we know how much food to make!
