Join us at Deane House as Michael Ableman, one of the early visionaries of the urban agriculture movement, shares inspirational accounts of residents in Vancouver's Low Track – one of the worst urban slums in North America – who joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighbourhood. It is a story of the recovery of land and food, of people, and of the power of farming and nourishing others as a way to heal our world and ourselves; one that will inspire Calgarians by providing a clear vision for combining innovative farm methods with concrete social goals, all to create healthier and more resilient communities. Enjoy a vegetable-forward progressive menu showcasing the best ingredients from our local producers as we welcome Spring’s return. $150.00 per person + GST + 18% gratuity includes dinner, beverages and a signed copy of Street Farm (proceeds benefit Sole Food)
