Wedding planners planned Vancouver Urban Farming event

Photographic art pieces and arrangements of locally-grown vegetables and herbs provided an extra sensory experience.

‘All & Sundry’ collaborated with the Vancouver Urban Farming Society for their latest urban farmers gathering.

Excerpt from their site:

The 2012 Vancouver Urban Farming Forum, held at the sustainability and creativity co-working space the HiVE, was centred around local urban farmers who wished to share data about their work and discuss subjects relevant to the farmers themselves.

All & Sundry created the large black-and-white photographic art pieces, signage, activity booklet cover pages, and table centrepieces for the 2012 Forum. With the theme of local food and sustainability at the forefront of such an event, the art pieces and accompanying signage were made-to-assemble so that they could be easily stored and reused for future events. An assortment of locally-grown herbs (rosemary, lavender, sage, Italian parsley) and two types of kale and chard were used for the table centrepieces to provide that extra sensory experience—the visual piece of seeing what can be grown most anywhere in the city as well as the lovely scent of fresh herbs—and as gifts for the event volunteers.

Food was curated and prepared by wild foraging guide and underground chef, Alexander McNaughton, with samplings of local fare from Urban Digs Farm, Harvest Community Foods, and Earnest Ice Cream. A number of Patch planters also made an appearance at the forum to emphasize the growing potential of their self-watering container system.

Thank you kindly for sharing our collaboration with the Vancouver Urban Farming Society! It was a pleasant surprise to be approached by Shelby and Zsuzsi to help bring some extra touches to the forum. Hopefully this won’t be the last time we work together!
