Join us for a free educational work party to kick off the 2015-17 Aberthau Garden Project, hosted by Village Vancouver.
Facilitated by permaculture designer and teacher and longtime VV member Grant Watson (and others), we'll be building an herb spiral and a hugelkultur and demonstrating permaculture techniques as we create the garden.
There’s room for up to 25 folks. UPDATE: We currently have 24 confirmed, so room for 1 more. All levels if experience welcome – we teach you as we go along.
RSVP on the event post or to Ross at email@example.com.
The Blitz is generously supported by a Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver, and administered by Kits Neighbourhood House.
Building on the last two year’s outdoor garden project, Aberthau Garden Project in 2015-17 will be partnering with Village Vancouver, local artists, community members and the WPG Preschool here to grow food based crops and fibre together. Free workshops open to all ages will be offered, please check the VV website for updates. For info on the previous years Flax –food -Fibre projects go to www.Aberthauflaxfibrefood.blogspot.ca/
