Aside from our mobile produce markets and food skills workshops, we operate the following programs in the neighbourhood:
Kensington-Cedar Cottage Seed Sharing Library: In collaboration with the Kensington branch of the Vancouver Public Library, we started a seed sharing library in the fall of 2013. Throughout each growing season, we will be hosting gardening workshops on a variety of topics. The workshop series is called Seedy Saturdays (after the popular seed sharing events in other cities) and will include a seed swap at each event. So far, our workshops have covered seed saving, starting from seed, specialty gardening, companion planting, and permaculture.
Kingcrest Community Garden: The Cedar Cottage Food Network worked with local residents and the Park Board to develop and build a community garden at Kingcrest Park at Knight and Kingsway in the fall of 2014. The garden has 35 plots and 3 accessible beds; there is a also a demonstration garden for the Seedy Saturday workshops. E-mail kingcrestgarden[at]gmail[dot]com to put your name on the waitlist for a plot.
Intergenerational Garden Projects: Connecting youth and seniors through gardens. For youth 12 to 17 , interested in learning how to grow their own food. To reister email firstname.lastname@example.org
