Event Description

Join WE Neighbourhood Food Network and Village Vancouver at our monthly family friendly gatherings. Bring something yummy and share some good food and conversation with neighbours. We'll have a seed library there - you can get some free seeds for your garden, or swap or donate seeds or plants.

This month you're invited to a "West Harvest Mocktail Party" -- a swanky cocktail party/urban county fair! Join us as we mix and mingle with our local balcony and community gardeners. Enjoy delicious appetizers and non-alcoholic cocktails (shrub and herbal syrup based). Please bring your own favourite cocktail or martini glass! The mocktail party is supported by a Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation.

The Food Network's WE Urban Garden Club meets after the potluck until 3:30. Join us in exploring possibilities for creating a new community garden and other gardening spaces in the West End. This month's theme is Birds and Plants. We typically also hear from our WeBee group, and discuss potential new workshops and activities. All ages welcome, and you don't have to have a garden to attend!
