Saturday July 6th: Work Party, Syrian Lunch and Native Plant Walk & Nature Exploration Workshop

What did we harvest at our Work Party? A LOT! Raspberries, blueberries, tayberries, black raspberries, snap peas, cauliflower, cabbage leaves, garlic, potatoes, and dill! Everyone got to take home some of the harvest.

The Syrian Lunch that was hosted in the garden this past Saturday was a huge success! About 50 people came out to share a delicious meal, learn about the prepared dishes, and eat together as a community. Thank you Silva, everyone who contributed to the meal, and Small Neighbourhood Grants.

After the lunch, the Native Plant Walk & Nature Exploration was also hosted at the garden. Lori Snyder, Metis Forager, lead the Native Plant Walk, and Emma Lei, PLANE Coordinator, lead the Nature Exploration. It was a very interesting workshop, and we learned lots about the different native plants in our very own garden, including which ones are non commonly known edible plants, medicinal properties, and stories. Thank you, Lori and Emma!
