Potato Picking Party

Everyone is invited to join the Cranbrook Food Action Committee (CFAC)  at the First Annual Public Produce Garden Potato Picking Party
Sunday, September 30noon to 4 pm
Come for a fun-filled afternoon and maybe leave with some potatoes or kale or cilantro or just a tummy full of yummy new boiled potatoes. 

There will be potato sack races, potato egg and spoon races and Mr Potato head decorating contests  for the kids a composting workshop given by local expert, Laura Duncan, for the adults, and a roaming vermiculture (worm composting) expert, April Wells, before we all get down to some serious taste testing of the first potato harvest of many to come in our new Public Produce Garden.

The Garden is located in Eric McKinley Park which is on 18th Avenue North between 6th Street North and 8th Street North.  Closest bus stop is just before Victoria Ave by the Mitsubishi building. 

The project was begun by the City together with the CFAC to benefit everyone so all are definitely welcome.
