UBC Farm - Centre for Sustainable Food Systems
3461 Ross Drive, Vancouver, British Columbia
Come and join our Summertime Celebration — Good in the Hood Summer Jam at UBC Farm.
On Wednesday August 22, Vancouver's entrepreneurs will come together for an upscale soiree featuring a non-alcoholic cocktail reception, plant based dinner, readings and healing sessions and mini workshops, featured entrepreneurs, guest speakers, and dancing. YES -all in one day!
The hi-light of the event will be an outdoor yoga class accompanied by live music with Allegra Chamber Orchestra and some of the top yoga teachers in the city!
Since many in our community have children, we are making this event family friendly and would also like to invite all the kids of the charities and non-profits we have sponsored in the last 2… years.
This is THE party for us as a community. You know what heart-based events are all about: We show up, as ourselves, struggles and celebrations, ready to share, present and open minded, ready to listen and connect — heart to heart and soul to soul. Kindness and compassion are key to our interactions. Truth telling is our only story.
We are setting the stage for a magical evening and your presence, co-creation and laughter, wonderment and curiosity are all welcome!
