Join the Cedar Cottage Food Network and the Vancouver Public Library – Kensington branch for this introductory workshop, the last of our Seedy Saturday workshop series for 2015, on November 21st from 11am-1pm.

Instructor Kim Del Valle Garcia has many years of experience with farming and permaculture. She has chickens and bees at home, and is familiar with bioremediation techniques, which involve mushrooms. She will discuss her experiences with these three garden helpers, explaining the benefits and challenges that she has faced.

The Kensington-Cedar Cottage Seed Sharing Library will be open at the event, if you would like to take home some seeds or donate ones you have saved.

In addition, we’ll have a selection hyper-local goodies from Fresh Roots Urban Farm. Fresh Roots’ produce is grown in schoolyards right here in Vancouver (Van Tech and David Thompson Secondary Schools, to be exact). That means the footprint of this produce is much smaller than conventional as it travels less than 10km to get to our markets. You can taste the difference in their food!

So make sure to head down to this Saturday’s mobile market locations to stock up. We will be at Brant Villa from 10:30am to 12:30pm and SKensington Community Center from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. Take a look at our mobile market locations for more info on how to find us.
