Event Description

Are you curious about starting an urban farm business and learning how to make creative use of space to grow food for sale? Interested in indoor farming, the microgreen movement, and local distribution?

Join Samantha Dobo and Xch'e' Balam for a tour of their urban microgreen facility and a workshop on the art and business of growing nutrient dense greens in the city! Tasty Greens is a community-minded neighbourhood farm located in an East Van character home that offers bike-powered delivery of its greens.

Samantha is a Certified Holistic Nutritionist with years of experience in the health industry. She is a proponent of healthful and mindful living. Her background and enthusiasm for wellness are a driving force at Tasty Greens, where she spear heads education and mentorship in the community, by spreading the benefits of a balanced lifestyle.

Xch’e’ is an Industrial Designer and entrepreneur. His practice focuses on re-engaging people with the natural environment through small interventions. Tasty Greens is a jumping off point to get individuals excited about connecting with their food and inspiring them to become more self reliant through small scale gardening.

Please note that the Tasty Greens facility is located in Strathcona, and we will be sending the exact address to registrants the day prior to the event, as the facility is in a private home. If you would like to attend, but would rather pay cash the day of, email and we can let you know where the event will take place.
