Think Local. Act Local: Urban (Food) Projects
ING DIRECT invites you to meet Peter Ladner, author of "The Urban Food Revolution" and Bryce Gauthier, landscape architect and founder of Projects in Place Society at the ING DIRECT networking event, with Q&A on urban community food projects.
Please join us if you want more information on urban farming, how to become involved in community projects or to network with experts on these topics.
Ladner's book, “The Urban Food Revolution-Changing the Way We Feed Cities”, is an essential resource for anyone who wants practical advice on how to join the local food revolution.
Projects in Place (projectsinplace.org) is a volunteer-run, non-profit society that brings construction and landscaping professionals together with the general public to design and implement creative projects that benefit the community, from rooftop gardens to playgrounds.
To register: http://ThinkActLocal.eventbrite.com The event is FREE, however capacity is limited.
Note: ING DIRECT is currently a food drop off location in support of @FiveholeforFood for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, so please bring some non-perishable food with you!
