A new Homegrown Harvest Workshop Series held at the Burnaby Village Museum this summer is set to launch. The series is a wonderful extension of the Museum’s current agricultural theme.

Workshop topics include:
  • container food gardening, 
  • preserving the harvest, and 
  • seasonal meal planning. 

The sessions are led by local experts known in the industry. Plan to take in one, two or all seven of the free sessions!

The first in the series is on Sunday, July 5, 1:30 - 3:30 pm. Drop in to hear the presentation on Summer Container Food Gardening by Leanne Zmud and Lisa Schuster, Certified Permaculture Designers.

More information on the series is available on the Museum’s webpage under the ‘programs’ tab or by downloading the Homegrown Harvest brochure (PDF).

This series was developed and is presented as a collaboration between Burnaby Food First and Burnaby Village Museum.

Garden Party

The Museum's 2015 Homegrown Harvest theme will also be celebrated with a Garden Party and Artist Talk on Saturday, June 27 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm in the Meadow at the Museum. The museum is located at 6501 Deer Lake Avenue in Burnaby.

Tour the backyard garden displays and the 'Bees and Berries' photo exhibition (Stride Studio) plus enjoy live music and refreshments! Come one, come all!
