Workshop: Winter Vegetable Gardening

If you’re a gardener with a year or two under your belt and are ready to expand your horizons, maybe you’d like to learn how to expand the growing season.

The Winter Vegetable Gardening workshop explores what to plant and when. Simple designs for home-made cloches and greenhouses will be covered as well. The session will be held:

Saturday, June 13
1:00 to 3:00 pm
Eagles Estate Heritage Garden
5655 Sperling Avenue, Burnaby

Instructor Heather Johnstone has spent years learning with organic farmers on the west coast and is now working with home-scale urban gardeners to help them grow food. She is the coordinator of the Edible Garden Project on Vancouver’s North Shore and has recently joined the Board of FarmFolk/CityFolk.

The cost of the workshop is $20, with proceeds going to The Land Conservancy of British Columbia. Pre-registration is required: phone 604-733-2313 or email lralph@conservancy.bc.ca to register.
