Wheatravaganza!

Lawns to Loaves Celebration

A time to come together and celebrate the successful harvest of our urban wheat crops – and get plenty of hands on learning about wheat from plant to pizza. Neighbours and community groups are coming together to share in the bounty of this year’s abundant crop pooled from a number of plots throughout the city.

Throughout the day, drop in for:

Milling – The flour peddler shares his bicycle powered flour mill. Come lend a hand. (Or foot.) There’s also wheat that needs threshing and seperating wheat from the chaff. Come learn how!

Create a scarecrow with urban straw.

Take home a bag of rye to plant as a covercrop or to harvest as a grain in the summer. Learn more at 12noon at the Rye 101 Workshop.
