Victory Gardens Vancouver Giveaway

Victory Gardens Vancouver Giveaway
I’m really excited to team up with Victory Gardens Vancouver for this giveaway. Lisa, Sam and Sandra are challenging the way our city uses space through urban farming!

They’ve hooked me up with two really cool giveaways:

1) Two Tickets to Old Faithful & Victory Gardens Workshop
This is a container gardening workshop and the focus of this event will be on tomatoes and how to grow your own pizza! The workshop takes place on June 9th, from 9:30 – 11:00AM and each participant will walk away with a handmade cedar box planted with tomato and basil.

2) Victory Gardens and Collage Collage Handmade garden Kit 
This kit features a handmade cedar box, drainage rock, earth, seeds, row markers, decorating supplies and instructions on how to grow your own food.

If you’d like to snag either of these prizes we want to see your best “Vegetable Still Life”. Snap a photo and leave a comment below with a link to it. You can use a service like imgur to do it. If you want some inspiration: here, here, here, or here.

We’ll pick two winners on Thursday, June 7th!

Drones Capture Disparity Between Rich and Poor in South Africa

Lines6

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller reveals distinct lines between rich and poor in a striking (and unsettling) series of photographs. Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
