TO BE RESCHEDULED
Sprouts are one of the most concentrated sources of nutrients on Earth. They can be grown in any climate, at any time of the year, in a limited space, for cent per liters. Registered Nutritional Practitioner and Chartered Herbalist Nikoo Boroumond will show you how to grow your own sprouts at home with no special equipment. Bring a jar if you want to take some stuff home to start right away.
A Village Vancouver seed library will be present; bring some seeds to swap, if you'd like.
Cost: $15. Workshop fee includes cost of materials ($4).
50% Subsidies on the non-materials portion ($11) of the workshop fee are available to low income residents of Vancouver with a Leisure Access Card. For details on how to apply, please contact Strathcona CC or visit http://vancouver.ca/parks/rec/lac/index.htm.
