Seedy Saturday: Starting seeds indoors – March 5

SeedySaturday03.16It’s back! Our Seedy Saturday workshop series in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library – Kensington branch is returning for the 2016 season and kicking off on March 5th.

Our first session will cover starting seeds indoors, an important skill for beginner and advanced gardeners alike. Instructor Tamiae Squibb will show participants how and when to start which seeds indoors (and which to sow directly), go over caring for the seeds, and discuss transplanting those little seedlings.

As always, our Seed Sharing Library will be open and full of seeds for participants to take home to experiment with in their gardens. We also accept donations of seeds – if you save seeds yourself and have extras, please bring some to share with everyone.

This workshop is free but seating is limited so please pre-register online or in person at the Kensington branch of the Vancouver Public Library. Light refreshments will be served.

See you there!

Family Day Celebration Photos

This past Monday, Cedar Cottage Food Network (CCFN) was invited once again to organize cooking demonstrations at Trout Lake Community Centre to celebrate Family Day (and Lunar New Year, too!).

The smell of ginger attracted folks to Laura’s demo.

The first demonstration was by CCFN Board member, Laura, who showed event attendees how to brew up their own (non-alcoholic) ginger beer. Laura is a fermented foods fanatic who is starting up her own business soon.

The second demonstration was led by CCFN Executive Director, Lauren, who worked with several children to make homemade Pop Tarts, a fresh take on the heavily processed breakfast treat.

Last but not least, CCFN volunteer Lucia demonstrated how to make vegetarian dumplings, a Chinese New Year staple. This was another especially popular demo with kids.
