Event Description

Marpole Neighbourhood Food Network started last Spring and is co-sponsored by Village Vancouver and Marpole Place Neighbourhood House.

Please join us at our 1st ever potluck and visioning session for an afternoon of good food and stimulating dialogue, and to learn about some of our upcoming workshops and other activities.

This Summer we held Balcony gardening and Worm Composting workshops which were well attended. (Thanks, Jen for your great facilitation!). We harvested veggies and herbs from the demonstration balcony garden for our Thursday night dinners and our summer camp meals.

We held two canning workshops and have been using the jam that was preserved for our community breakfasts. We also tabled information about the Network at Marpole Community Day, Main Street Car Free Day and Connecting Marpole Day, and gave out food, herb and flower seeds and composting information to gardeners.

Hear what’s going on in VV's Neighbourhood Food Networks and in other NFN's, and through Marpole Place Food Programs, and how Village and others are helping start and build new networks in Vancouver.

Then explore how a local, neighbour and community-driven food network could help create a more food just, resilient, sustainable, and healthy Marpole. 

We want MNFN to be broadly inclusive of community food activities in Marpole and invite individuals, families, community groups, community gardens, businesses, service providers, and other involved in food related activities to consider getting involved. 

So let us know what you're up to and how you can contribute to building the Network!

Potluck from 1-2, Visioning from 2-4.


Part of the Sustenance Festival.
