Edible Container Garden Show, Aug. 8th

This is the blog equivalent of a re-tweet: The Withrow Park Farmers’ Market and Toronto Balconies Bloom introduce their first collaborative Edible Container Garden Show, on Saturday Aug. 8, 2009, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine, at the Withrow Park Farmers’ Market.

Participation is open to all urban gardeners, from 3 to 103. Eligible containers must be salvaged, recycled or DIY handcrafted, and 70% of the plant material must be edible (either whole or in part). What to grow is limited only by your imagination: grow a mini herb garden in a shoe or an edible flower garden in an old car tire. The size is up to you, but we prefer you use sustainable transportation options: wheelbarrow, wagon, bike trailer, bundle buggy, TTC, carpool…

Help spread the enthusiasm and experience for growing edible containers by exhibiting your funky bucket of homegrown eats at this first-time event!

Send your submission by Friday, July 24th with a description of your design, materials used, motivation behind the design, and a couple of sentences about yourself and your urban small space gardening experience to contact [at] torontobalconiesbloom [dot] ca, listing “ECG show” in the subject line.

Volunteers are needed to prepare the event and on the day of, so if you can help, please contact Roberta at withrowpfm [at] gmail [dot] com.

The Withrow Park Farmers’ Market is one block south of the Danforth, between Carlaw and Logan. Closest subway stops are Chester and Pape. Visit withrowmarket.com for more information about WPFM.
