VVoA Cook Out and Potluck
JUNE 25TH 11am-3pm at Hawrelak Park, look for our banner. If you end up arriving a bit later or wish to stay longer, you may. 3pm is a general end time. We will find a fire pit and set up there. (We won't be setting up at a shelter, so no need to pay!) This event is happening in good weather only. If it's raining we won't be there. Please bring a vegan dish to share, your own dishes, cutlery, cup, beverages, veggie Burger or sausage. Everyone welcome. Come out to hang and meet some great people! Please share this with your friends and family! If anyone is able to bring firewood, please let us know in the comments or by messaging the page.
FARRM Group Volunteer #2: July 9
This is the 2nd group volunteer event for FARRM with the VVoA community! We aim to leave Edmonton by 10am again and arrive for around 11am. You are welcome to stay and volunteer for as long as you like but last time most people stayed until about 3pm. Please pack a lunch, water bottle(s), long sleeve shirt and work gloves, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and if you have a blanket or lawn chair consider bringing one for the lunch break. Be mindful of the farm rules for your safety as well as the consideration of the animals. Do not type in the address into your GPS as it won't take you there. Follow these directions from Edmonton: Get onto highway 2 headed south towards red deer. As youre driving past the city of Leduc you'll go over an overpass and you'll see an exit for Wetaskiwin (hwy 2A) on your right. Take that off ramp. It'll take you thru a set of lights and you'll take it straight into Wetaskiwin. Once you're in Wetaskiwin continue on 2A until you hit 40ave (husky gas station on left hand corner). Take a left on 40ave. From here you drive straight to my house. From the outskirts of town we are about 11km east. Once you hit gravel you'll pass a big red house on your left. We are 1.5km past that on the left. Sign out front says 230002 Hwy 822. Any issues or if you miss the exit just call Melissa from FARRM: 780-717-2813.
