SUSTAINABLE SPRING BREAK 2007 AT MACMILLION SPACE CENTER - Worm Workshop for Families - March 19th, 2007

Looking for something fun and educational to do this March break? We’ve got the perfect solution. This year's spring break programming will focus on a week-long look at sustainability from social, economic, and environmental perspectives.  Sustainable Spring Break will feature displays and demonstrations by various organizations from the greater Vancouver area, which have successfully created public awareness programs on issues surrounding our environment and sustainability.  Each day, from March 19th to the 24th, we will focus on a central theme: Food, Energy, Climate, Water, Recycling and Transportation, respectively. Event participants will join us to communicate their information through fun, engaging presentations with games, contests, prizes and more! Click here, for more information.

 

TODAYS EVENT:

Today we will explore the themes of Food and Agriculture. We have all heard the saying ' You are what you eat'...well, we are going to get to the bottom of what this really means and discover sustainable food alternatives that are good for both your health and the health of the planet. Together, families can plan a menu and calculate the distance their food has traveled between the soil and plate, explore the ideas of responsible agriculture, and discover the exquisite flavours of locally produced foods.


Topic: Worm Workshop for Families : A step by step approach to worm composting and the benefits of this process in the urban environment
Organization:  City Farmers
Time:            1pm – 3pm
Location:       Space Centre's Lounge on lower level
