Grow food in your neighbourhood!

Knight_DSC_2587_bigGrowing your own food is a great way to get involved in your community, have greater access to healthy fruits and vegetables, and stay active. Good news for those in the Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood: there are garden plots available at Kingcrest Community Garden for the 2016 growing season!

The garden has 35 lower plots and 3 accessible beds (great for those in wheelchairs or with mobility issues). Located in Kingcrest Park at Knight and King Edward, the garden is easily reached by bus or bike. Join us in our second year of growing for what promises to be a great season!

Kingcrest Community Garden members have the added benefit of being able to attend Seedy Saturday workshops and get free seeds from the Seed Sharing Library at the Kensington branch of the Vancouver Public Library across the street.

To find out more or to reserve your plot for the year, e-mail kingcrestgarden[at]gmail[dot]com.

Market Produce – Jan 16

potassium-potato2Potatoes are a very popular food source. Unfortunately, most people eat potatoes in the form of greasy French fries or potato chips, and even baked potatoes are typically loaded down with fats such as butter, sour cream, melted cheese and bacon bits. Such treatment can make even baked potatoes a potential contributor to a heart attack. However, by taking away the extra fat and deep frying, a baked potato once again becomes an exceptionally healthful, low calorie, high fiber food that offers significant protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer.

 

Here is what to expect at the market this week:
  • Bananas (South America and Organic)
  • Carrots (BC and Organic)
  • Broccoli (California and Organic)
  • Kabocha squash (BC)
  • Avocados (Mexico)
  • Royal Gala Apples (BC)
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes (BC)
