It can be easy to forget about the wealth of food that grows all around us. Come out and learn about edible plants that call our region home in this Village Vancouver workshop. Lori Snyder from the Metis Nation will discuss how to identify and harvest wild, edible, and medicinal plants in an ethical way. Please dress appropriately for the weather. We'll have the Riley Park Community Garden seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds.
Help lay down sedum matts and starter plants, and seed blends that will give the illusion of green with no mowing!
We’ve collected some of the best local blends and will demonstrate seeding and care to establish a lush carpet that’s beneficial for everyone.
Participants are welcome to pool together to place an order for sedum matts for their home, and we’ll have some seeds to share.
Learn about the benefits of plants that have been growing here for centuries! Michael Wolfe, science teacher and Masters of Education in Sustainability Student will deliver a walk and talk workshop.
Rewilding Kits will be available at the City of Vancouver Tree Sale across the street from 10am - 2pm.
Join us on May 5th for a celebration of community, food and sunshine celebrations in the community garden. Cinco de May brings with it bright colours, great food and festive music and with your help, our Saturday festivities after the garden work party will be full of just that.
Bring your favourite taco fillings or sides for our taco bar potluck, and prepare to feast!
