Fall festival season is upon us. I wrote about the Moon Festival coming up on Saturday, September 29th hosted by the Still Moon Arts Society. Our group will be walking through Renfrew Ravine as part of the Simon Fraser University Applications course this year. Turns out there will be a lot of activity in the Ravine that day. Evergreen’s new Urban Ecology Project Manager tells me they will be hosting a World Rivers Day event there that day from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. They’ll be planting and taking water quality samples. Around 4:15, they’ll have an eco-history walk toward Slocan Park and the site of the Moon Festival.
But before that festival, Evergreen is hosting a festival of their own on Sunday, September 23rd from 1 to 4 pm at their great Northern Way Urban Orchard. The Heritage Harvest is a celebration of food, land and cultural diversity. There will be food, music and dance performances, and you can press your own soft apple cider. A dynamic duo of festivals!
