SOLEfood Farm Raising

Posted on: December 3rd, 2009 by Heather

Just put together the video of the first SOLEfood Farm Raising, back in October. Sorry for the delay, folks.

To All Participates of the Urban Farm Raising Event in the DTES,

Let me start off by thanking all volunteers for all your hardwork in helping to jump start the first phase of the Urban Farm Raising Project in the Downtown Eastside on Halloween. The event was a big success and it could not have happened without any one of your participation.

Within the 6 hours period of the urban farm raising event, over a 100 volunteers have participated in our community building project. Everyone from students, businesses owners, green activists, local residents, families, kids… have come to help and learn about what they can do for their community and environment. This event has also generated a lot of attention from different media groups, businesses, organizations and individuals on the importance and the many opportunities that sustainable green community building project can ignite. On behalf of everyone from Projects in Place Society (PIPS), I would like to send out our deepest appreciation for your support.

This project is only one of the many community building events of Projects in Place Society and we would like to extend our invitation to everyone to volunteer or join us for our upcoming events. We will surely keep everyone posted with our latest news. If you like to learn more about Projects In Place Society, please invite our blog at And if you have any ideas for any sustainable green building projects, you are more than welcome to contact us

I have attached some pictures and articles about the Urban Farm Raising event at the bottom of this e-mail. More pictures will be posted on our blog shortly. Once again, thank you everyone for all your help and we look forward to see you again at our next community building event.
