Event Description

Join WE Neighbourhood Food Network and Village Vancouver at our monthly family friendly gatherings. Bring something yummy, share some good food and conversation with neighbours, and pick up a West End Urban Garden Calendar. This month's topic is Mason Bees, and we'll be giving away mason bee houses (limited supply).We'll have the West End community seed library there - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds or plants.

The Food Network's WE Urban Garden Club meets after the potluck until 3:30. This month's topic is Build Soil (Composting) for Patio and Balcony Gardening, plus we'll be discussing creating a new community garden. We'll also hear from our WeBee pollinators group, and talk about upcoming (and potential future) workshops and activities. All ages welcome, and you don't have to have a garden to attend!

FREE. Registration required: Potluck #199940 WECC 604.257.8333 or in person, or on Vancouver Recreation (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/community-potluck-seed-library-workshop/197014).

Enrol separately for the Garden Club #199950 (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/west-end-urban-garden-club/197024).
