Hi Ross,

Thanks for all the information!
I would like to get involved, but tomorrow actually I will not be in Kits so will not be able to join the seed packet work party. I will keep up to date with the events page though and hopefully join you at the next opportunity.

Hope you had a good day gardening today - the weather was beautiful! =)

Cheers!

Hi Ross, yes you are right, I was at the seed gathering, and I think we were both in the Seed saving for native plants workshop. I also work with Emmanuel Prinet and he talked to me about Village Vancouver. I will join you on the 6th for the Slow food event. Let me know if you need help on that day! Stéphanie
