Cinéma en plein air : Seed : The Untold Story

38245344_2168356566778645_6678985551883796480_n.jpg

Wednesday, September 5 at 8:30 PM – 10 PM
Le Virage campus MIL, 6700 avenue Durocher, Outremont

Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. SEED: The Untold Story follows passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000 year-old food legacy. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these heroes rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds. SEED features Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbrell, Winona Laduke and Raj Patel.

SEED is Executive Produced by Academy Award Winning Actress Marisa Tomei, Marc Turtletaub (Little Miss Sunshine) and Phil Fairclough (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).

Perennial Plant exchange: 14th edition

35052227_10155237597321086_1363120051636404224_n

On Saturday, September 15th 2018 (12-2pm), the Éco-quartier NDG will host a perennial plant exchange in Somerled Park (at the Eco-quartier NDG in case of rain – 6575 Somerled, suite 206).

All Montreal residents are invited to bring a perennial in order to exchange it with one from the bank. It is a great opportunity to increase your garden’s variety of perennials as well as meet other people who are passionate about gardening.

Perennial plants provide numerous benefits. In addition to the fact that they don’t have to be replanted every year (reduces transport, containers, etc), these plants often have deep, extensive root systems which can hold soil to prevent erosion. They also capture dissolved nitrogen before it can contaminate the ground and surface water, outcompete weeds (reducing the need for herbicides), and help to mitigate global warming by carbon sequestration.

The Éco-quartier NDG welcomes those looking to freshen up their gardens, as well as those simply looking for tips to get their gardens started.

Register now at ecoquartier@gmail.com or call (514) 486-2727.

Fermented seasoning – Chimichurri and Pico de Gallo

40825537_1641067306002301_2676290569923198976_o

Wednesday, September 19 at 6 PM – 8 PM
Concordia Multi-faith & Spirituality Centre
2090 Mackay

Season jars members will share their knowledge about fermentation, explore traditional food preservation methods and reflect on the role of food preservation on building more sustainable, healthy and resilient food systems.

We will collectively prepare delicious seasoning recipes such as Chimichurri and Pico de Gallo. These recipes use a variety of preservation methods, they are slightly fermented, some can be preserved with vinegar and oil, then refrigerated. They can be served as dipping sauce, over meats, are delicious over toast, roasted potatoes, mushrooms or sea food and they can still be used as a marinate.

What: Food Preservation
Where: Concordia Multi-faith and Spirituality Center
When: September 19th from 6 to 8:00pm
Recipe: Chimichurri and Pico de Gallo

We will learn about the preservation methods involved, about the cultural background and have fun preparing a batch collectively for you to take home!

Three sisters

Wednesday, September 19 at 5 PM – 10 PM
Le Virage campus MIL, 6700 avenue Durocher, Outremont

5@8 Auto-cueillette et marché de verdures, bar et musique avec Coop Bioma.

18h@19h30 Les trois soeurs : le retour des cultures traditionnelles dans nos jardins / Three sisters and more : the return of traditionnal staple crops in the garden

> Atelier-conférence bilingue anglais et français

Description : Corn, beans and squash have sustained many peoples throughout the americas for more than six thousand years. In a period where our agriculture is causing the degradation of soils and contamination of water, growing our own staple crops while regenerating the soil becomes an act of resistance with much meaning and impact.

During this workshop, the chef Taylor Parker from the Six Nations Community will talk about the past and present of the Three Sisters in traditional Mohawk cuisine. The farmer Philip Zoghbi will go through the basics of gardening with those three plants and how to combine them with other plants and mushrooms in a small garden or farm.

Three Sister snacks will be served at the end of the workshop.
