Event Description

Want to grow food, but don't have much room? In this Village Vancouver Fairview False Creek South Neighbourhood Food Network workshop, instructor Rhiannon Johnson will cover the techniques and challenges specific to gardening in small spaces, both indoors and outdoors. We'll look at soil, fertilizing organically, watering, types of containers, different sun orientations and, of course, what to grow in your space. We'll have a community seed library present - pick up some free seeds for your garden, swap or donate seeds. 


Register: #182250. or False Creek Community Centre (604.257-8195 or in person).
