Event Description

Celebrate the harvest at the West End Neighbourhood Food Network’s September Potluck. From 1-2 pm, sample fruits and desserts purchased from our local Farmer’s Market, and find out the latest with WENFN and Village Vancouver. Please bring something to share, along with your plate, cutlery and cup. Then join in a hands-on workshop on Winter Planters (see event photo for example). Register fast; Supplies for building the planters will only be provided for the first 20 participants who register. (Additional participants will receive hand-outs.)

We'll have the WENFN seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds. There'll be a plant swap too!

FREE

This month's gathering is part of the West End Food Festival, which WENFN helps organize and sponsor.

Formed in 2011, West End Neighbourhood Food Network is a diverse network of community members and organizations working together for a just, sustainable, and resilient food system in the West End. Join us at our monthly potlucks, skills building workshops, seed and plant swaps, food scrap drop spots (2012-15), community festivals, and at our other activities and projects. Website: foodwestend.wordpress.com. Info: ross.wenfn@gmail.com.

Watch for additional WENFN potlucks, workshops, and other activities at WECC and Gordon Neighbourhood House. WENFN is sponsored by Gordon Neighbourhood House.

Great potluck and Winter Planter workshop today - over 25 in attendance - nice to see everyone and great food. Our next WE potluck is on October 18th, and Sprouting is the workshop topic.

20 folks are registered for the Seed Saving workshop on Tuesday evening - still room for a few more.

Hapyy end-of-summer everyone!
