Food+Fibres: building relationships in our Indigenous food corridor

 October 28th 1-4pm Trillium Park

This afternoon is an opportunity to learn about the seasonal timelines of plants we honour for their gifts of  both food and fibre, and assist in EartHand’s autumn planting.

Participants will spend time in the gardens  assisting with planting out the salmon shape of the garden beds as well as hands-on time learning about gathering fibres from stalks of fireweed, nettle and məθəɬ ( dogbane).

A simple hot lunch and tea will be provided!

This special  afternoon is a part of the Ancestral Food Ways Festival with plant donations from Vancouver Park Board.

Please dress for the weather- event is partially undercover outside as well as open air for the planting component. This is a free event with limited spaces, please pre-register.

This event takes place on  the unceded land of the  xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil Waututh) peoples.

The Neighbourhood Matching Fund supports local residents to lead creative art and environmental improvement projects with neighbours in their community.
