Heads up, Vancouverites. My good friend Karen is part of a team that is converting urban lawn space into a productive market garden. The space is beside the George Pearson Centre at 57th and Cambie, and the goal is to grow vegetables, herbs and flowers for the Main Street Farmer’s Market.
Drop by on Fridays between 11am-3pm to say hi, help, or learn about their project. You can also sign up to get market newsletter updates. Email jkrashleigh (at) gmail (dot) com to get on their mailing list.
EDIT: I am so smrt, s-m-r-t. Here’s the latest newsletter from Farmers on 57th, just for you. It’s a sizeable file, so be patient.
