Event Description

UPDATE: This workshop was full, but we've just opened up a few more spaces.

Enjoy this workshop presented by West End Neighbourhood Food Network. Want to grow food but don't have much room? In this course 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. WENFN will have a seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds. (Come a little early.)

For further information, please contact Ross at or visit

Register #36636: WECC (604.257.8333 or Small Space Gardening or in person).
