South Van Strawberry Social June 5, 2022

12 May

In South Vancouver, there is amazing non-profit called Free The Fern that has been working hard to remove invasive plants from the Red Alder Trail in Champlain Heights. In doing so, they’ve built a great community supporting their work. Their projects have been funded in part by TD Park People and Neighbourhood Small Grants.  This is a passionate group making a difference in their community.   On Sunday, June 5th, they are hosting an event and showcasing their passion and projects with you.  

Free The Fern invites you to the South Van Strawberry Social being held Sunday, June 5th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on the Red Alder Trail, 3530 Swansacre.  On hand, you can expect to find:

  • 200 free servings of strawberries (with shortcake and whipped cream) – First come first serve.
  • live music, including a 20s-40s jazz trio.
  • local craft vendors: Resistance Kitters (fundraising for Ukraine), Wild Rose Natural SkincareGoodfellow Craftery, and more.
  • an eco art workshop: learn how to make a pencil from an invasive blackberry stem.
  • tours of our new Douglas Fir Teaching Garden: with hundreds of native flowers, berries, and ferns. Note, this teaching garden includes a Douglas Fir which is estimated at 162 years old.
