Lawns to Loaves project orientation and workshop

 

Sunday, May 1, 2011

10–12 p.m.

Strathcona Community Garden

RSVP to Hartley via email: hartley[AT]eya.ca

Lawns to Loaves connects local residents, community groups, schoolchildren and bakeries in a collaborative urban wheat farm comprising a patchwork of micro-fields across the city.

 

This spring, the project needs committed volunteers to grow at least 25 square feet of wheat in their backyards, front yards, community gardens, churches, alleyways, etc.

 

Volunteers will receive seed and support along the way, culminating in a fall celebration where participants will thresh and mill their harvests to create the most local bread and pizza dough in the country.

 

Sign on for the orientation and workshop on Sunday, May 1 at Strathcona Community Garden by emailing hartley[AT]eya.ca.
