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.
More info here and here.
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!
“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”
This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.
You can now fly on Hello Kitty Airlines! Taiwan-based EVA Air has launched three jets: The Apple Jet, The Magic Jet, and The Global Jet. I love how ridiculous this is!
Heads up Vancouver, I have given the last of our Booooooom x Poketo wallets to my buddy Zach at The Juice Truck (Abbot St + Water St). Any juice or smoothie purchase gets you a FREE wallet ($20 value) but you have to ask for it, it’s not advertised anywhere!
The amount of wallets left may last a week or so? (just a guess.)
PS – Zach says they are open 11:30AM – 5:00PM everyday.
