Growing Chefs’ Favourite Things
The Growing Chefs! team is super excited for the holidays! We’ve put together a list of our favourite things for the gardener and budding chef on your Christmas list!
Compost Stew by Mary McKenna Siddals
Compost Stew, is a classroom favourite right out of the Growing Chefs! Classroom Gardening and Cooking Program. The rhyme-filled book showcases all things compostable starting from A to Z! A great book for children who are learning to compost at home.
It’s never too soon to start planning for your garden! Get your favourite gardener packets of seeds. Check out West Coast Seeds, the Van Dusen Seed Collectors Seed Store and Truck Farm Seeds for a huge variety of seeds.
Give the gift of delicious local food! Get the foodies on your list a Vancouver Farmers Market gift certificate. The Growing Chefs! team loves the Vancouver Farmers Market; you may have even spotted us shopping for the best local and organic food year-round.
Patch Planters are the perfect gift for novice gardeners. This self-watering vegetable garden will provide your friends and family fresh veggies all year! For every Patch Planter purchased online, Patch will donate one to support our Growing Chefs! Cooking and Gardening school program! Check our how they are supporting us: http://www.letspatch.com/pages/1-for-all-1.
Edible Vancouver Magazine Subscription
Every season we wait by our mailboxes for the latest issue of Edible Vancouver. We love the photos that make us drool and stories from local farmers and producers.
Gift Certificate to Your Favourite Restaurant
There is no shortage of spectacular restaurants that serve delicious local food. Grab a gift card from your favourite restaurant for the food lover on your list. Fingers crossed for a gift card to my favorite bakery, Terra Breads from Santa this year!
