Planning Your Veggie Garden – (Free Workshop)

The Table Community Food Centre

Saturday, 18 January 2014 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm + Lunch

This workshop covers what must be considered when establishing a garden. These include, but are not limited to, slope, N/S, E/W alignment, convenience, access, storage, water, comfort. We can imagine a perfect garden and then consider what must be done to make our 'Imperfect" garden as useful as possible. We will also begin to list what foods we want to grow, learn about crop rotations, and discuss the kinds of seeds available.

The workshop will be run by Jeremy Dutton, Lead Gardener at The Table who has 30+ years of market-gardening experience

Maureen Bostock, of Sweet Meadow Farm, will join us to talk about the importance of growing organically and of choosing organic seeds.
