Michael Ableman Dinner April 23, 2017
Farmer, Author, Photographer, Co-founder and Director of Sole Food Street Farms
Join us at Deane House as Michael Ableman, one of the early visionaries of the urban agriculture movement, shares inspirational accounts of residents in Vancouver's Low Track – one of the worst urban slums in North America – who joined together to create an urban farm as a means of addressing the chronic problems in their neighbourhood.
It is a story of the recovery of land and food, of people, and of the power of farming and nourishing others as a way to heal our world and ourselves; one that will inspire Calgarians by providing a clear vision for combining innovative farm methods with concrete social goals, all to create healthier and more resilient communities.
Enjoy a vegetable-forward progressive menu showcasing the best ingredients from our local producers as we welcome Spring’s return.
