Location: West End Community Center, Bidwell Room
Organized By: West End Neighbourhood Food Network

Event Description:
The West End Urban Garden Club would like to invite our community friends, old, new and yet to be – to join us as we gather for holiday cheer and great food!

This informal family friendly potluck will allow us to celebrate our gardening year and we’d love to see new gardeners and other community members there. Bring a dish to share and come with your gardening stories, or tales of your favourite comfort dishes, or traditional seasonal foods. Everyone’s welcome.

In the spirit of sharing, we’ll be collecting donations for local food programs which provide access to healthy food for folks in need. If you’d like to contribute, we suggest five or ten dollars — or whatever you’d like to give. (Choosing to contribute is totally optional.)

Cost: Free! Register: #181087 WECC 604.257.8333 or Holiday Celebration (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/west-end-urban-gardening-club-holiday-celebration/178134) or in person.
