Looks like the city’s tightening the purse strings. Instead getting a copy of the Fall 2011 Winnipeg Leisure Guide, I got a flyer advertising its launch on August 29.
I guess I should be happy for the trees, carbon footprint etc, but dammit…I like flyers. I like holding something in my hand, turning down a page corner, tearing out a page and sticking it in a file.
Oh well, looks like its PDFs from here on in.
Registration is officially open. Check out the virtual guide on the City of Winnipeg website (but I’ll also be listing them all on the Savour Winnipeg Events Calendar) and waste no time signing up for courses by calling 311. Have those course numbers handy, and prepare some backup dates/courses. These things fill up pretty fast.
But if you’re out of luck or looking for alternatives, keep an eye on Savour Winnipeg’s Experiences page. We’ll certainly be leading another excursion into the woods to forage for wild edibles in September, so stay tuned for dates or subscribe to email updates.
