Join artist Holly Schmidt, Vancouver Design Nerds, Ocean Dionne and Alicia Medina Laddaga and a team of master gardeners for a workshop exploring the possibilities for growing food in the urban environment. Through observation, discussion and hands-on prototype building you will create and share new ways to grow food in the city. Small pocket gardens will be planted at Creekside and then suspended on chain link fences near the Grow project site. Take a miniature garden of your own to add some green to your neighbourhood.
Please join sustainability educator, Duane Elverum and artist Holly Schmidt for a walking dialogue through SEFC. Duane will draw from his experience in design thinking, architecture and community engagement to consider the concerns of social and ecological sustainability in the context of Vancouver’s greenest development, as well as the urban design challenges of our growing and changing cities. Holly will explore the question of how sustainability can be enacted not just built into our urban environments in the context of Grow, an urban agriculture project in SEFC. This walk will provoke questions, spark curiosity and stimulate a creative response to sustainable futures.
