Event Description

Celebrate International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples at the Queen Alexandra Garden!

The Right to Education is this year's International Day theme. What better way to learn than by getting your hands in the soil and sharing good food with neighbours?

Garden Co-Coordinator Ida Manuel (daughter of Chief George Manuel) will be leading a Native Plant Walk at the start of the event. Afterwards, everyone will come together to harvest, prepare and enjoy a healthy salad, snacks and fresh blackberry - lemon balm ice tea from the garden!

There’s also berry picking, kids games and seeds to give away and swap. We have arugula, cilantro and kale seeds saved from the garden, and a mix of other awesome seeds from Village Vancouver.

This is a kid and family-friendly event, all ages are welcome!
