We've pleased to help organize and sponsor the West End Food Festival (September 17-22) for the 3rd year, and to offer several free events at WEFF, including a Native Edibles workshop and walk, a Seed Saving workshop, and a Harvest Potluck and Winter Planter workshop. We also encourage you to attend Eat, Think, Vote on October 21st. (Please register 1st.)

Our next monthly potluck is on October 18th and features a mini-Sprouting workshop, and a Seed and Plant Swap.

We're also offering a free Concepts in Year Round Gardening workshop on October 22. Both are part of the Sustenance Festival (October 13-25 citywide).

WENFN is sponsored by Gordon Neighbourhood House, and is a member of Vancoouver Neighbourhood Food Networks. Village Vancouver helped start and collaborates with WENFN on a number of activities.
