Announcing a new Meetup for Vancouver Meatless Meetup!
What: Strawberry U-PICK
When: Sunday, June 27,[masked]:30 AM
6611 - Buswell Street
Richmond, BC V6Y 2G9
Despite the less than ideal weather conditions, the strawberries should be ready for u-pick around the end of June. The cherries typically are ready around Canada Day and they may be delayed as well.
I will need to confirm with the farm that the berries are ready the week of, so the pick date may move forward to the following weekend. The owner has also indicated that at best, they could only accommodate a small group, so I am limiting this meetup to the first 5 others who signup. This is NOT an open event and signup is necessary (for carpooling, lunch reservations, and in case the date is changed). A waitlist will be taken.
Also, if you can't join our party, try going on your own. A new batch of berries typically ripens every 3 days and the farm is open Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm.
I am proposing that we carpool around 10 a.m., pick from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and then go and have lunch around noon at Veggie Bunch Restaurant in Richmond. This restaurant offers an awesome Taiwanese and Chinese buffet so bring about $10-$15 cash.
If others want to just meet for lunch, email me separately. You will need to meet us at the restaurant at noon.
