Hey Chris,

Matthew again from Village Burnaby.  We are planning our second potluck for Wednesday January 25th, 2012 at the Bonsor Recreation Centre (6550 Bonsor Ave).  We had an amazing first meeting, and would really like to build some momentum around the ideas discussed.

Also, if you want to stay in the loop with whats happening with Village Burnaby, please join our Village Burnaby page. Look forward to seeing you soon!

Hey Curtis,

 

It was great meeting with you and digging dirt!  Pea shoots are SUPER easy:  soak peas (you can get them at most grocery stores) over night in water.  Put a layer of soil down on a tray that has some drainage holes in it.  Place peas fairly intensively (touching and maybe even slightly overlapping).  Then keep it watered everyday.  You can keep it in a dark place for the first few days (encourages roots to go down) and when you see the first set of false leave start to push their way up, stick them outside or under grow lights.  You can harvest* anytime after the first set of true leaves emerge (aka the third set of leaves you see after the shoot has started).  In about 2 weeks you'll notice that the shoot will grow back! 

 

To harvest, just cut the shoots about 1/2 inch from the soil. 

 

Please keep in touch about the mushrooms!  I'm soooo stoked about them!

Welcome to Main Street Neighbourhood and thanks for coming out on Monday.

We are meeting next at Little Mountain Neighbourhood House for a potluck, seed sharing, and short movie night on Tuesday evening April 5.  This is right next to the library near 24th Avenue on Main Street.  Please stop in for some free seeds to sow in your garden or inside, or come for the entire event, from 6:00 to 8:30.  

We are organizing a number of events this summer, such as Car Free Day on Main Street on June 19.  We'll be erecting an entire sustainable village, with chickens, bees, a composter, rain barrel, solar panels, etc.  We'll need volunteers to help make it a great place to visit for everyone.  

Meanwhile, we are busy growing lots of food in the city and are creating a roving food market (a small farmer's market) to distribute this zero-mile food to every neighbourhood in Vancouver, by bicycle.

There is lots to do, and lots of fun people to do it with.

Whatever you'd like to do, we'll help to make it happen.

Randy
