The Second Annual Food and Garden Fair Celebrating Ken Proudfoot's Legacy! To grow upon the success of last year's inaugural event, Memorial's Botanical Garden, and its dedicated partners, have reassembled to offer the public the exciting opportunity to participate in the 2nd Annual Food ‘n Garden Fair! Featuring new chefs and retuning favorites, this year is set to be bigger-and-better! Guests at the Garden can expect:

  • multiple demonstrations, displays and tips on: gardening; growing vegetables, herbs and composting;
  • kids’ component including vegetable creature creations, newspaper planters and various other activities;
  • a unique food tasting experience where local chefs will tempt your taste buds with their culinary creations using ingredients provided by our local farmers, and;
  • the annual Potato Peeling Contest – for kids and adults!

In addition to recognizing 2014 as the “International Year of the Family Farm,” the Food ‘n Garden Fair will continue to honour Ken Proudfoot’s legacy as a research scientist, potato breeder, avid gardener and a Friends of the Garden member.

Admission to the Garden is free for that day; however, donations to the garden, as well as non-perishable food items for the Community Food Sharing Association, will be gratefully accepted.

Food tasting tickets are $20.00 and will include tasting samples from four chefs between 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on the day of the event. To partake of the food tasting experience, visitors are encouraged to purchase tasting tickets in-person at MUN Botanical Garden prior to the event date.
