FEASt’s Open Garden Day – Sign Up!

Check out this awesome event happening next month! I’m signing up my garden, so come on down and visit on the 20th! Email local.feast@gmail.com to sign up your own garden or just sign up for the FEASt newsletter (in order to get the map to the ‘open garden day’)


FEASt (Food Education Action St. John’s) is planning an ‘Open Garden Day’ on Sun. Sept 20th, 1 – 5pm, to be followed by a Local Food Potluck Picnic (& Autumn Equinox Celebration) at Bannerman Park, 5pm – 8pm.

We will be preparing a map of interesting food gardens in St. John’s.  People are invited to use the maps to do self-guided tours to see all of the different ways food is being grown in the city!  Ideally, the gardeners will be home to share info & ideas. 

If you are growing food and are willing to list your garden space for our tour, please register with us! (Send us your name, address, & brief description of your garden.  DEADLINE to register: Sun. Sept 6th)  

We’re looking for ALL TYPES – big, small, raised beds, containers, greenhouses, in the ground, fruit trees, backyard chickens, etc. – you name it!  (If you know of other people growing – neighbours, friends, family – put them in contact with us, too!)   Our goals include: showcasing the variety of what’s possible; connecting people & cross-pollinating ideas; and inspiring everyone to get growing!  

Then bring your favourite ‘local food’ dish over to Bannerman Park for a yummy potluck celebration! 

For more info or to list your garden, please email: local.feast@gmail.com.
