Walking Tour: Social Enterprise in the City: Feeding our Faces
 

When: September 21st, 2016 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm

 

Tour will begin promptly at 2pm. Please meet at 2pm at the Fernwood Community Centre located at 1240 Gladstone Ave, Victoria BC. Parking is available across the street and on Gladstone Avenue.

 

What to Expect: Join us for an exploration of how social enterprises are feeding our faces. A short walking tour will take you from Fernwood to Victoria’s expanded Food Ecology District (FED) where you will explore urban agriculture, farm to table restaurants, and planting polices that support the new food economy. Speakers will be on hand to enlighten us to the planning possibilities and pitfalls. Food samples provided will flow from hand to mouth to perk the palette to the planning potential. Put on those walking shoes and come get 3 Continuous Professional Learning Credits with a side of social enterprise exploration.

 

Attendance at this event qualifies for 3.0 (Organized and Structured) Learning Units for PIBC CPL.

 

The Fine Print: Participants will be expected to walk up to 5k and be prepared for any weather. More information on speakers, route, and registration will be released shortly. Please stand by.
