Garden Planning Workshop on March 8!

Early March is a great time to plan your garden- whatever the size or context (school, backyard, container, or even small urban farm).  We hope you will join us in The Orchard Garden for a hands-on garden planning workshop.  Topics covered will include:

·     Selecting appropriate crops for your site and our Vancouver climate/ ordering seeds
·      Planning (and maximizing) harvests by scheduling planting times
·      Succession planting
·      Crop rotation
·      Record keeping (crucial for a successful garden!)

We will discuss methods for mapping your garden site and ways to maximize sunlight and growing space.  This workshop is open to all- even those brand new to gardening!

When:  Thursday, March 8, 12-2pm
Where:  The Orchard Garden, 2357 Main Mall, behind the Macmillan Building (rain or shine- dress appropriately)
Free or suggested donation of $5 to cover materials
Please RSVP by Friday March 2:
