Event Description

Celebrate Terra Madre Day and the holidays in a relaxing way! Join us in an oasis of calm amidst a sea of holiday frenzy for our 5th slow food, slow everything day, hosted by Kits Village.

Drop by anytime. Potluck lunch around noon or maybe one, potluck dinner at 6ish, movie later on - or something to this effect...

Any food, especially local, you wish to bring for the potlucks or for other times of the day is most welcome; "slow food" is especially encouraged -- making pizza is always fun!

In between, hang out, go for a walk at the beach, enjoy a conversation, read a book, take a nap, visit the Kits Village Collaborative Garden, or relax and do nothing. And maybe board games, knitting, seed swapping, soup 'n share???...suggestions welcome or surprise us!

11 am until late.

I'll probably attend, just for an hour, in the late afternoon, after my stint at the Sunday Market at Pigeon Park (11-3pm) and before my regularly scheduled community meal at Woodwards at 6pm. You must tell me about your organic gardening experience then! Can you tell me where a can find you between 4 and 5pm?

Hey Hendrik,

We'll be going from 11 am to 11ish pm, so if there's any time that works for you, we'd love to see you!

The garden workshop has 25 people registered, so is full - but if you can confirm asap for it, we can add a space for you.

I like to attend, but I am usually busy with the Sunday Market at Pigeon Park on Sundays until 5pm and we also share a community meal at Woodwards every Sunday at 6pm. I was thinking of attending the "Introduction to organic food gardening" at Mc.Bride Park 10am-noon, also hosted by Village Vancouver. Is that event still on?
