Join WE Neighbourhood Food Network and Village Vancouver at our monthly family friendly gathering. 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 mini-workshop is Understanding Packaged Soils and Fertilizers with Hunters Garden Centre.
The Food Network's WE Urban Garden Club meets from 2:30-3:30 after the potluck/workshop. Join us in exploring possibilities for creating a new community garden and other gardening spaces in the West End. This month's topic is Where we've been, where we're going: Reviewing our 1st year and looking ahead. We'll also hear from our WeBee and Seed Savers groups, and discuss potential new workshops and activities, and we'll be giving away some native bee houses and rolling bee tubes as well. All ages welcome!
