Do you love pickles!? We love pickles and it’s the perfect time of the year to get your pickle on. Join us to learn different pickling techniques, get your pickling supplies, and share your favourite recipe.
The Edible Garden Project (EGP) is working to address urban environmental and social issues by creating a network that grows and shares local food and by promoting sustainable regional agriculture. We are working to reduce the reliance on foods imported from afar by empowering residents to grow (and share) their own. The EGP is the result of an extensive community consultation process where food security was identified as a key priority area from both a community and environmental perspective. Adequate access to fresh fruit and vegetables is a cornerstone to good health, but is beyond the reach of many low income community members, and current industrial agricultural practises can be highly detrimental to the environment.
The project aims to bring people together to grow and distribute locally produced food to low-income individuals and families on the North Shore. The EGP is bringing together homeowners with gardens who want to donate a portion of their harvest, people who have under or un-used garden space and would like to cultivate this land for growing food, and volunteers who want to contribute to growing, sharing and learning about locally produced food. We provide information and education in the community to build knowledge and skills around ecological food gardening and urban agriculture.
We also like urban farms…
