North Vancouver: Edible Garden Project and Loutet Farm Tour & Potluck

The farm touring, skills sharing, weed dating, potluck season is upon us. Each week there are young agrarians potlucks in different locations around the Southern half of the province. It’s like tomatoes or potatoes or nasturtium volunteering in the garden – events are popping up everywhere as young farmers build community! We hope one day there are potlucks in every corner of BC.

Lower Mainlanders: our collaboration with Vancouver Urban Farming Society is growing. We’re in the midst of scheduling a bunch of potlucks into the fall months. Check out our events page on Facebook to find out details.
