Young Agrarians Potluck - Comox Valley

Sunday, March 3, 2013 - 20:00 to Monday, March 4, 2013 - 01:00

March 3, 2013 - the day after Seedy Saturday!

Join us at Ripple Farm for the first ever Comox Valley Young Agrarians potluck and learn-in!

Arrive around 3:00PM for a hands-on soil-blocking demo in the greenhouse. Soil blocks are an awesome alternative to using plastic pots and plug trays for seedlings. We'll have an array of soil-blocking equipment to show you and everyone will have a chance to test drive the blockers and help get some of the seeding done.

Everyone is welcome.

Soup potluck around 5:00PM. That means you can bring something that would go well as a side to soup. Please consider bringing something that accounts for common food sensitivities (gluten, dairy, nuts, etc.)

Eating, socializing and visioning together will happen till 8:00ish.


Young Agrarians is a movement for the next generations of farmers and food lovers in Canada!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
