Seedling to Sidedish: Explore Cultural Plants and Palettes

May 6, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
The Burnaby Festival of Learning is proud to present Seedling to Sidedish, hosted by Embark Sustainability!

Join Embark Sustainability during this year’s Burnaby Festival of Learning to discover how you can cultivate and cook a culturally diverse array of fruits and veggies.

In this workshop, you’ll learn to grow plants and your palette by exploring the produce different communities use to create their cultural meals. Walk through the process from seedling to side-dish, learn about creating just food systems, and explore the accessibility of culturally significant foods.

Seeds and recipe cards included! Join us in the Student Union Building Learning Garden on May 6th.


This event takes place on the unceded homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and kʷikʷəƛw̓əm (Kwikwetlem) Nations.


Please note that the Student Union Building (SUB) Learning Garden is wheelchair accessible, and the building itself has accessible washrooms. We aim to make our events accessible to as many of our community members as possible.
