Event Details

Celebrate the launch of brand new book Our Edible Roots: The Japanese Canadian Kitchen Garden. This book is part gardening, part recipes, and full of cultural history. Featuring research, interviews, and gardening tips from members of Tonari Gumi, the Japanese Community Volunteers Association.

This book showcases growing and foraging tips and stories from seasoned gardeners. 40 delicious recipes (with vegan options) highlight these wonderful vegetables. Guides to using Japanese ingredients and methods for traditional culinary techniques are also included. Perhaps most important highlight is the telling of the Japanese Canadian experience through stories and interviews with community elders.

Celebrate the stories, taste a sampling of the recipes in this book, and pick up a copy for yourself! All proceeds of book sales will support seniors services at Tonari Gumi Japanese Community Volunteers Association.

Limited space and RSVP is required. Please email tg.gardeners@gmail.com to reserve a spot.

If you can’t make it, books are also available to purchase online and in person at Tonari Gumi. More info here.
