Backyard Composting Workshop

Village Vancouver and the Westside Food Security Collaborative are pleased to offer a new neighbourhood based food networking workshop in Kitsilano. (This was mostly written by Ross at Village Van, but you need more than a B.A. to figure out how to override my byline!)

Backyard Composting with Spring Gillard
Wednesday, July 15th, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
at the new collaborative community garden

Kits Neighbourhood House
2305 – 2325 West 7th Ave (corner of Vine and 7th)

Want to learn how to compost or get some tips on how to manage your smelly, rat infested bin better? Is it too dangerous to compost if you live in a non-earthquake proof highrise? Is it okay to put dead pigeons or belly button lint in the bin? Join Spring Gillard, author of Diary of a Compost Hotline Operator and get all your burning compost questions answered.

Spring does widespread research into urban agriculture worldwide. She is an avid storyteller who believes in the power of humour to convey serious messages.

The workshop is offered on a pay what you can basis. A two hour Backyard Composting Workshop usually costs around $25 – $35. Our contributions make it possible for teachers like Spring to expand and deepen the scope of the important educational work they are involved in.

To register, or to host a future backyard composting or other networking workshop, please contact Everyone is welcome to attend, but registration is limited to 25 participants.

See you there!

Other network presenters  include Robin Wheeler (founder Sustainable Living Arts School in Roberts Creek, author Food Security for the Faint of Heart, and Gardening for the Faint of Heart) and Heather Havens (Agricultural and animal scientist).
