Connect the Plots
On the full moon of August 1st, EYA will join the Stratchcona Community Gardeners and the Theatre on Earth Collective in re-imagining Lughnasadh, an ancient harvest festival, with Connect the Plots, a fantastical reveling in the bounty that surrounds us.
Funded by the City of Vancouver’s Community and Neighbourhood Arts Development Program, Connect the Plots is a new incarnation of the annual Strathcona Community Garden open house. It will throw open the garden gates for a free, all-ages village fair in Vancouver’s first community garden, an urban oasis at the heart of our beautiful city. The celebration will include theatrical roving characters, pizza made from Vancouver grown wheat (from Lawns to Loaves!) and baked on site, a presentation of a “Places that Matter” plaque by the Vancouver Heritage Foundationand a special appearance by a Celtic Sun God. Be prepared to test your skills, divulge your secret fears and enter the Espalier of Hope. Come join the feast and bring your picnic supplies (plate, cup, napkin and a blanket)
Where: Strathcona Community Garden, at the corner of Hawks Avenue and Prior Street
When: August 1st 2012, 6:30-8:30pm, Full Moon
FREE, All ages welcome
Let’s all revel in the bounty of the first harvest!
