There will be a variety of toppings to choose from to add to your pizza base. Once you have finished making your edible creation we will we pop it in the oven to your liking, we then welcome you to devour it slice by slice and enjoy the company around you.

Entreprenuer Socials

Local business leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs come together at the fieldhouse every month or two in various social gatherings.

In an effort to create and nourish open source entrepreneurship (OSE), the idea of openly encouraging and supporting businesses, we put on problem solving potlucks known as, "More Lemons More Problems." We gather, share a potluck meal, and discuss the very real risks and pitfalls of running your own business. Contribute your own topic, or chime in on issues such as the best payment system to choose or how to value and merge startups. These meet ups provide a valuable source of community, as well as critical knowledge and tools to flourish in a competitive economy.


Our "Change Makers Social" events, are more casual meet ups, designed for you to make real connections with other like-minded people in the community. We bring together the most amazing entrepreneurs of passion and purpose who are drawn to connect, to collaborate, and to support each other in entrepreneurship and in making an impact in the world.

Zero Waste Community Dinners

Working in collaboration with several local stakeholders, including the Riley Park Garden Group, UBC ethnography students, and local nutritionists, and funded by the Vancouver Foundation, and City of Vancouver's Neighborhood Small Grants program. These events will bring community meals, that are not only zero waste but also locally sourced. Accompanied by facilitated discussions about sustainability and local food.

As we can't bring our community together in person at our beautiful Fieldhouse, we will be sharing some monthly ideas on how to stay connected with your local community and hopefully give you some motivation to try something new. 

Inspired by the annual polar bear dip, we're starting with the idea of cold water swimming...
