With great excitement we’re announcing our South Vancouver Harvest Festival! Taking place at the Schoolyard Market Garden at David Thompson Secondary on October 18th, 2014, the event is part of Vancouver’s Sustenance Festival, a city-wide celebration of local food culture and sustainability. Together with the South Vancouver Neighbourhood House – we will be throwing an all-ages farm party to celebrate our community’s bounty.
Join us for an afternoon of harvest exuberance and a celebration of food and community! Activities will start at the farm at 3pm and include pumpkin carving, apple pressing, and lantern making. Celebrate the season with a bowl of hearty harvest stew, and cast your vote in a multicultural dessert contest (or enter your own!), or simply bring a blanket and watch the action unfold.
Let us know that you’re coming by getting your tickets here. There is no charge for this event but there will be opportunities to contribute ‘by donation’ to help cover costs. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Bring your family, bring your favourite friend, or just bring yourself!
Stay tuned at @freshroots (Twitter & Instagram), our Facebook page, and our website as the full party plan unfolds. Start sharing your #SouthVanLove pictures with us!
