Kale Chips

O.k, so I prob­a­bly plant­ed way too much kale. I was excit­ed about grow­ing it and had no idea just how pro­lific it would be. I was try­ing to get cre­ative about ways to cook and share the kale and I hit upon kale chips. If you haven’t tried them before, I high­ly rec­om­mend this tasty and healthy snack.


Upcoming Workshop: Sunday July 24th

Please join Dun­can Mar­tin and his chick­ens from Duncan’s Back­yard Hen­hous­es for an after­noon at the Bulk­head Lab. Dun­can will be lead­ing infor­mal demon­stra­tions and dis­cus­sions on the basics of prop­er care and keep­ing of small urban flocks of hens. This inter­ac­tive ses­sion will invite par­tic­i­pants to dis­cov­er best prac­tices for keep­ing small flocks of hens in their own back­yards.


Upcoming Third Grow Workshop

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.

Micro Gardens for Chain Link Fences

The Grow Work­shops are com­ing up…first one is this Sat­ur­day, May 21st. In prepa­ra­tion, Elisa, cura­to­r­i­al assis­tant with Oth­er Sights, orga­nized a work bee at my stu­dio. She taught us how to cre­ate this easy (rel­a­tive­ly) to fold pock­ets that can be sim­ply attached to a chain link fence and used for grow­ing.
