Home Grown Gourmet: Gardening for Foodies
Signups closed for this Event
Forget expensive, frou-frou entrees: grow your own edibles and discover what gourmet really means. Author Andrea Bellamy will inspire you to grow fresh, seasonal food - from heirlooms and other unusual edibles to the "everyday exotic."
Andrea Bellamy is the creator of Heavy Petal, a blog devoted to urban organic gardening. She has a certificate in garden design from the University of British Columbia and has been gardening since childhood. Andrea is the gardening columnist for Edible Vancouver Magazine and is involved in community garden advocacy and community-based food security. On her own small third-floor balcony, she grows a wide range of edibles including tomatoes, potatoes, shiitake mushrooms, and saffron crocuses. She is an active guerrilla gardener and a proud steward of a plot in her local community garden.
Copies of Andrea's book Sugar Snaps & Strawberries: Simple Solutions for Creating your Own Small-space Edible Garden will be on sale. Book Price: $20.00
