About the event
🌞 ✨ Sundance Harvest: How to Farm in Community ✨🌞
Date: Sunday, February 26th, 2023, 2pm-4pm
Location: QPIRG-Concordia (2100 Rue Guy #205, Montréal, QC H3H 2M8, Canada)
In this interactive and very hands on workshop you will dive into what farming in a community looks like from the cooperative, collaborative and community land trust lens from the past and present day. You will create a blueprint of what your own community farm can look like either as a career to make a fair income for yourself and workers such as Sundance Harvest or on a different scale. We won’t be speaking about just vegetables! Mushrooms, herbalism, livestock and much more will be covered. Everyone has a role to play in community and you will learn how to troubleshoot common communication issues, land access, capital startup, infrastructure build, simple crop plans and of course how to figure out what part of a forest you really are!
This is the ideal workshop to come to if you know you want to grow with the land, and you know it’s best to do that in community.
This is not a lecture! You will be moving and grooving around the room in a form of a circuit. You will be able to socialize, brainstorm and at the end of the workshop have a definite plan for your next steps along with crucial resources provided.
Hosted by Cheyenne Sundance, the owner and farm director of the living wage certified and 3 acre farm Sundance Harvest.
This event is supported by QPIRG-McGill, QPIRG-Concordia, Le Frigo Vert, and Divest McGill.
