Knowledge Market: Urban Agriculture Edition
The rough winter months are now behind us and it’s time to burst out those gloves, rakes and sprouts! I for one am interested, after this long Siberian season, in diversifying the greenery that constitutes my backyard. The tomatoes and herbs are classics, but why not try pumpkins, melons, or peanuts? So many options! Where to start?
The solution: a Knowledge Market, Urban Agriculture Edition!
This time, not only will you be able to share knowledge with the other participants at the event, but, with your donations, you’ll help perpetuate the Santropol Roulant‘s mission:
Santropol Roulant uses food as a vehicle to break social and economic isolation between generations and cultures. Creatively and collaboratively, we strengthen and nourish our local community with our novel approaches to active youth engagement, urban food systems, food security and community care.
E-180 invites you to this Knowledge Market, Urban Agriculture Edition, a knowledge-sharing fundraiser where you’ll leave with practical advices for your greening projects.
Join us on June 4th at Santropol Roulant’s: 111, Roy East St, from 6 to 8 PM to share your knowledge on urban agriculture and get some insights on all the delicious things you could be growing this summer! You might also be interested in hearing out our partners (to be announced soon).
For this very special third edition and since we believe in the synergy between the E-180 and Santropol Roulant’s missions, we are asking that you pay what you can.
On the agenda, different thematic hubs to meet with participants with similar interests:
- Year-long gardening
- Green roofs and balconies (small-scale intensive, straw bales)
- Special projects (mushrooms culture, green backyards)
- Agriculture sustained by community (collective gardens)
- Animals in the city (apiculture, hens in Montreal)
There are only 100 spots available so register now!
We’re looking very forward to meeting you and sharing knowledge together!
You can learn all year long by registering to E-180, a matchmaking site connecting you with like-minded people interested in sharing knowledge, over a coffee.
