It occurred to me, after the CBC did an on air radio interview and a TV news piece on the Truck Farm, that people might want to actually have a close encounter with the Truck Farm.

So here are some upcoming events where you can find us:

  • June 8: Strathcona Sustainable Garden Fair at the Strathcona Community Centre located at 601 Keefer Street. I am giving two workshops: Growing with Lego and how to make the worlds cheapest and easiest self watering planter. We will also have seed collections available for sale.
  • Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16:  28th & main for Car Free Day. We will be doing a workshop for kids as well. Hoping to find some tiny plastic toy pickup trucks for them to plant microgreens in but we may have to change to a different “pot”. We will also have seed collections available for sale.
  • July 6 & 7, 2013: Epic sustainable Living Festival at VanDeusen Gardens. We will also have seed collections available for sale.
  • Saturday July 20 2013: VanCity’s Member Appreciation event at Loutet Farms. 
  • In August it will be at the PNE. 
  • And at some point it is summer it will be going back into the Sustainability Exhibit at Science World.
