City Beet Farm Tour & Potluck

Posted by Sara Dent on July 30, 2013

More yards in Vancouver, BC have been converted to farm space! The young farmer movement grows! As part of our ongoing collaboration with Vancouver Urban Farm Society – we have two Vancouver potlucks in August. The first on Wednesday, August 14th with City Beet Farm, and the second at Southlands Heritage Farm Saturday, August 24th.

City Beet Farm Tour & Potluck – August 14th

Come join us for a tour around Mount Pleasant of City Beet Farm’s front/side/backyard farms! After finding their farm legs during an organic farm internship on Reroot Organic Farm in Harriston, Ontario, Ruth and Katie launched their first season of their peddle-powered operation in Vancouver. They run a CSA and grow on converted lawns in Riley Park and Mount Pleasant neighbourhoods.

6pm Meet at The Mighty Oak and tour the hood by foot or bike, 198 West 18th Ave. (cross street Columbia Street)

7pm Potluck picnic at Mount Pleasant Park at 16th and Ontario: bring a dish to share, blanket to sit on, tools to eat with and your loved ones!
