Event Description

Join us for a free educational work party to kick off the 2015-17 Aberthau Garden Project, hosted by Village Vancouver.

Facilitated by permaculture designer and teacher and longtime VV member Grant Watson (and others), we'll be building an herb spiral and a hugelkultur and demonstrating permaculture techniques as we create the garden.

There’s room for up to 25 folks. UPDATE: We currently have 24 confirmed, so room for 1 more. All levels if experience welcome – we teach you as we go along.

RSVP on the event post or to Ross at

The Blitz is generously supported by a Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grant from the Vancouver Foundation and the City of Vancouver, and administered by Kits Neighbourhood House.

Building on the last two year’s outdoor garden project, Aberthau Garden Project in 2015-17 will be partnering with Village Vancouver, local artists, community members and the WPG Preschool here to grow food based crops and fibre together. Free workshops open to all ages will be offered, please check the VV website for updates. For info on the previous years Flax –food -Fibre projects go to

Sorry to bail out on you at the last minute, but something urgent arose this morning. Looks like 2 spaces open now. Sorry!

Comment by Ross Moster on April 17, 2015 at 9:22pm

Room for one more person.

Comment by Ross Moster on April 17, 2015 at 9:02am

See you tomorrow, Jason. Per my comment to Michel, if you can bring tools, let me know.

Comment by Ross Moster on April 17, 2015 at 9:02am

Michel, not everyone RSVP's on the post; for example, some people contact me directly. Currently, we have 19 confirmed.

We're encouraging folks to bring hand tools and shovels, if you're able to. (No worries, if not.) Let me know if you're able to.

See you tomorrow!
