Today's revolutionaries are growing their own food
I never thought I would become interested in the old fashioned subject of agriculture but as I learn more about the costs of food logistics and the effects of industrial agriculture I am thinking more about the food I eat and where it comes from. If you want a primer in the revolutionary topic of food production (how subversive!) then take a trip down to Strathcona next weekend.
The Strathcona & Cottonwood Community Gardens is hosting its annual Open House & Plant Sale Sunday. Located at the sunny S.W. corner of Prior & Hawks St. in Vancouver.
Featuring workshops with noted 'Guerrilla Gardening' author David Tracey there will also be a spectacular plant sale, live music, free snacks, kids activities, bee keeping demonstrations and sustainable urban gardening & environmental workshops.
Recipients of a City of Vancouver Heritage Award and home to the Environmental Youth Alliance, the 7 acre Gardens feature solar powered buildings, native wetlands, organic gardening, beehives, heritage orchards, and a host of other innovative green projects.
Admission to the Open House & Plant Sale is FREE!!!
Come and have a great time, learn lots, and help make a difference to your Community and your Garden!
Remember - 'Feed the Community and it will Feed You'
