From Field to Fork
Tuesdays, (July and August)
3pm, meet in the Orientation Plaza
Free 45 minute program
These days eating local and urban agriculture are buzz words for everyone from community activists to city planners. But Burnaby's residents have been backyard farming for generations. From gentleman farmers to market gardeners, from the Oakalla Prison farm to the Chinese-Canadian farms along the Fraser River flats, Burnaby has a rich agricultural history. We invite visitors to make this connection between past and present, and to make it in a hands-on kind of way.
Field to Fork offers kids and adults the chance to muck about in our heritage vegetable patch while learning about Burnaby's farming communities. Participants get to pick plants, pull weeds, take a taste test, and match seeds to full grown veggies in our edible garden. Each participant receives a free carousel ride ticket and a heritage seed package to take home.
This free program runs every Tuesday at 3pm in July and August. Space is limited to 20 participants. Phone ahead to register or register as a drop-in on the day-of (space permitting).
To pre-register call us at 604-297-4565
