Want to gain some hands on construction experience? Do you enjoy using hammers, nails or handling wood? Do you want to learn how to build a really big worm composting bin to handle food waste like a pro? Here’s your chance! FoodCycles will be constructing its first modular set of worm bins, sprout-salad-herb growing tables and runoff collection systems on Tue, Jul 28, Wed Jul 29 and Sat, Aug 1, 2009 (10 am – 4 pm) at the FoodCycles greenhouse farm (70 Canuck Ave, map and directions http://bit.ly/1GYyWQ). Register ahead of time if you want to come by emailing foodcycles@gmail.com or call 416.845.0818. It’s a potluck lunch event and don’t forget to bring closed toe shoes, extra water, lighter layers and sunscreen. There will be more 3-day building sessions to follow over the next few months so stay tuned! Learn more about FoodCycles city farm at http://foodcycles.org or http://bit.ly/xxTmA.
