Dig In, St. Albert’s Horticulinary Festival, is an exciting weekend of culinary adventure that will excite you with the possibilities and benefits of eating locally grown food.

Through a series of demonstrations and hands-on workshops, participants will learn how to grow food in an urban setting and to prepare and preserve their own produce. Additionally, those who take part will discover the delicious joy of food they've grown themselves.

Tickets will be available in August 2016.
