Mark Bomford, the Program Coordinator for the Centre of Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm, will be our special guest this evening. Mark has been immersed in creating sustainable food systems for the last 14 years and has worked in various roles including growing food and managing food-centred organizations both locally and internationally. Learn tips for buying sustainable produce and taste delicious, seasonal canapes complimented by vinaroon wines.
This evening’s featured book will be “The New Self-sufficient Gardener” by John Seymour.
