Community gardening can help to foster the practice of ‘everyday multiculturalism’
Interested in gardening? Want to connect with neighbours and newcomers to the community?
CultureChats is inviting community members to join them for a free farm visit on Saturday, June 26 in South Burnaby.
Stephanie Johnson will host the CultureChats gardening group for the visit to Mim’s Farm. She’ll share her gardening tips and offer hands-on experience for this group of newcomers who are looking to hone their gardening skills.
The trip builds on two gardening workshops previously organized by CultureChats for the Burnaby Festival of Learning. The CultureChats association aims to bring together residents of the community across different cultures through a variety of cultural experiences.
“Many people who attended our gardening workshops during the Burnaby Festival of Learning have welcomed this initiative,” said Asmita Lawrence, the founder of CultureChats. “Community gardening is a hobby shared across many cultural communities that helps people to bond over their love of plants. It can help to foster the practice of learning and living everyday multiculturalism.”
Anyone interested in the group’s free activities can email firstname.lastname@example.org or join the CultureChats Meetup Group.
For next Saturday’s farm visit, details of the venue and the visit will be provided after registration.
