Potluck dinner and canning exchange: Fri Dec 2, 6-8 pm

As it gets colder and our gardening work starts to taper off for the winter, SLUGS is winding down for the season as well.  However, we wanted to have one last event to celebrate all the rad folks who have taught and learned with us this year.  Come on out to the Compost Ed Centre for a potluck dinner (as much local food as possible) and a chance to talk about all the projects we’ve taken on this year and our plans for the growing season next year.

As well, this is a good chance for a canning exchange.  Got tons of extra pickles?  Not sure you can eat all 30 pints of jam you put up for the winter?  Bring them along and trade with other folks so we can all enjoy the tasty bounty of each others’ canning efforts.

Haultain Common Winter Work Party, Sat Nov 12, 2:00-3:30 pm

The intrepid boulevard gardeners of the Haultain Common need a little helping hand! The Common has been nourishing the neighbourhood and inspiring urban gardeners throughout the city, and now it’s our chance to give them back a bit of our labour.

Drop by the afternoon of Saturday Nov 12 to help get the Common put to bed for winter through an epic mulch party. A great chance to learn about sheet mulching, permaculture food forests, and boulevard gardening while giving back to this amazing community resource.

Location:  the Haultain Common, the corner of Haultain & Asquith, Victoria, BC

Just a quick reminder that SLUGS is a program for 13-30 year olds. If you are in this age range, we would be stoked to see you at our events!
