Multicultural Upick Beds – Growing Together

The theme this year is the Philippines! We are excited to start researching plants that might grow in both Calgary and the Philippines, and ideas of what can be grown in Calgary as substitutes for plants commonly found in Philippine cooking. We also are collecting trivia, history, recipes, etc on all things Filipino to share on social media, our community bulletin board and website.  If you have ideas, thoughts, tidbits to share please send them toinfo@growingacadia.ca  or join in the conversations that will be starting on social media.  We are also looking for volunteers to maintain these community upick beds.
