Event Description

April is a busy time to get your garden going for the season, and there are a lot of plants you can seed directly in April. In this workshop presented by West End Neighbourhood Food Network, you'll learn what to plant now and how to do it, be it on your balcony or in your back yard. Guided by instructor and gardener Rhiannon Johnson, you'll come away with the knowledge to plant, grow, pick, and eat vegetables such as peas, greens, beets, leeks, scallions, parsnips, turnips, and carrots right now! Enjoy the taste of freshly grown veggies this season!

WENFN will have a seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds. (Please come a little early.)

Register #48364: WECC 604.257.8333 or April Garden (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/april-gardening-planting/43369) or in person. We're adding several spots, so don't worry if it says it's full -- there's room for you!
