Organized By: VV Eldergreens and Rashmi GC
Latest Activity: Feb 25, 2017
We currently have room for one more person.
Mason jar salads are ideal for make-ahead lunches. They are stacks of salad ingredients, layered in such a way that they remain fresh until consumed, and are healthy and easy to make. In this Village Vancouver ElderGreens workshop with Rashmi GC, you'll learn how to make one and take it home with you. All materials and ingredients will be provided, including a mason jar.
Adults and families with children 10 years and older are welcome. All minors must be accompanied by a caregiver. We'll have a Community Seed Library present at the beginning - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds. (Please come a little early for seeds.)
FREE. Register by Monday, Feb 13th here or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Bring a cutting board if you're able to (and let us know that you're bringing one).
ABERTHAU GARDEN PROJECT
Located behind the Mansion, just off of NW Marine Dr, and hosted by Village Vancouver, the garden includes VV’s Demonstration Permaculture Garden, the WPG Preschool Garden and art/garden projects by artists-in-residence LocoMotoArt: Laura Lee Coles and Rob Scharein. Emphasizing permaculture design elements, including a small hugelkultur, an herb spiral, planting pollinator attractants, and saving open pollinated seeds, the garden offers fun, inclusive social, educational, culinary and cultural activities for community members. Enjoy free or low-cost Wednesday evening cooking, fermenting and preserving demonstrations, including sauerkraut, kefir, and tastes of Korea and India, gardening workshops like early summer gardening, native edibles walks and the seed savers club.
In the garden, newer gardeners garden collaboratively alongside more experienced gardeners at our Saturday work parties, providing a learning experience for everyone. For more info or to get involved in the garden visit our Aberthau Garden Project page or email Ross Moster at email@example.com..
