!Event! – June 4th Planting Seeds: Reclaiming the Backyard Workshop

Planting Seeds: Reclaiming the Backyard Workshop will take place in the beautiful backyard of the Hammock Residency.  This  will be a hands on workshop in which participants transform a section of the backyard into a working vegetable garden.  We  encourage you to take part in this workshop by getting your hands dirty, bringing any garden tools (shovels) and starter plants you would like to contribute to the Hammock Residency garden.  Check out the Hammock Free School Events page for a schedule of  events  as well as details about each workshop.

On Sat 04 June, from 2pm – 5pm urban farmer Sasha Faminoff is offering an afternoon workshop on the beginning stages of transforming a backyard into a sustainable vegetable garden.

Sasha Faminoff – Guest urban farmer, Planting Seeds: Reclaiming the Backyard

I’m Sasha Faminoff, born and raised in the Lower Mainland and now living in wonderful East Van. After visiting numerous amazing places around the world, I’ve come to the conclusion that I love BC the most, and feel very happy to have my roots in this part of the world. I work as a teacher in the Burnaby school district, and as a farmer at the Richmond Sharing Farm. And at the little shared urban homestead I live in, I like to practice gardening, fermentation, fibre crafts, cooking… among many other things! I am always looking to learn more DIY skills, and like to learn and teach best through experience.
