Programs

Aside from our Community Food Market program and food skills workshops, we operate the following programs in the neighbourhood:

Seedy Saturday at Kensington Library: In collaboration with the Kensington branch of the Vancouver Public Library, we started a seed sharing library in the fall of 2013. Throughout each growing season, we will be hosting gardening workshops on a variety of topics. So far, our workshops have covered seed saving, starting from seed, specialty gardening, companion planting, and permaculture. Check out the Seedy Saturday events at: http://www.vpl.ca/location/kensington-branch

Current Seedy Saturday workshops for 2019 run at Kensington VPL every third Saturday of the month. 10:30am to 11:30am. Please join us! Free! 

Kingcrest Community Garden: The Cedar Cottage Food Network worked with local residents and the Park Board to develop and build a community garden at Kingcrest Park at Knight and Kingsway in the fall of 2014. The garden has 30 plots and 3 accessible beds.  We grow seed for the Seed Library inside the Kensington branch of the Vancouver Public Library.   E-mail kingcrestgarden[at]gmail[dot]com to put your name on the waitlist for a plot.

Intergenerational Garden Project:  Connecting youth and seniors through gardens.  For youth interested in learning how to grow their own food, email cedarcottagefoodnetwork@gmail.com to register.

Copley Community Orchard: Copley Orchard is the neighbourhood urban orchard that we have partnered with to offer programs that address food security, build the community, and keep the orchard a healthy green space.

Medicine Wheel Garden at John Hendry Park:  A learning garden where we grow native and medicinal plants for the community.
