School is just around the corner, but who says kids have to be in the classroom to learn?

We are happy to announce Passport to Permaculture Fall Workshops for Kids! If you missed our summer camp, don’t fret- kids can join us for after school workshops this fall, Sept 25th & Oct 2nd at The World in a Garden.

Read a testimonial from one of our camper’s parents from Passport to Permaculture Summer Camp 2012:

“Our daughter attended the Passport to Permaculture and said it was her best summer camp ever,  every day she came home excited to tell me what she had experienced.  She loved that she could touch everything in the garden and I appreciated that she could explore all the elements of growing, maintaining and learning about a garden.  She became aware of the importance of Bees from a bee keeper, the cycle of the chicken and the egg while the kids could hold the chicken and putting together a market to sell the produce that they had harvested from the garden.  I enjoyed seeing her and the other children engaged and taking ownership of the garden, identifying plants, enjoying the fresh produce and learning that vegetables don’t grow in the back of a store.”

There are a handful of lucky people who get to experience the local farmers market from behind the table, and we are happy to be some of those people! You can find us [and our locally-grown produce] at the Kerrisdale Farmers Market this season on select Saturdays, 10am-2pm. We are grateful to have the opportunity to get chummy with the other vendors, meet our neighbours and proudly distribute our produce that is grown just down the road from the market! It doesn’t get more local than that!

Find us at the market on the following dates in 2012:

Aug 25, Sep 1, Sep 15 & Sep 29

What’s on sale at our table this Sat, Aug 25th?

Blackberries, Gourmet Lettuce blend, Salt Spring garlic, beautiful beets and more!
