Event Description

In this Village Vancouver workshop with Rhiannon Johnson, you'll learn how to build your soil for a healthy vibrant veggie garden! Bring a 1 liter CLEAR container with a lid at least half full of YOUR garden soil for some simple tests to learn how to improve it with natural fertilizers, soil amendments, and gardening techniques. We'll also learn about composting, tailored to your space, and how it can supplement your garden's health. We'll have the community seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.

Cost: $0-10, including soil testing.

Register #130199 through SCC 604.713.1838 or in person, or at Vancouver Recreation online (https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search/healthy-soil-for-a-great-garden/125226). For sliding scale fee, register by phone 604.713.1838 or in person.

Our healthy, local food residency at the Strathcona Park Field House offers a variety of affordable food and community based programming at the fieldhouse, Strathcona Community Centre, and elsewhere. This workshop is part of VV's Building Community Food Security and Resilience Project. This project is made possible by the BC Ministry of Agriculture's Grow Local program. Healthy Soil for a Great Garden is also part of VV's 2017 Cultivating Food, Cultivating Community Series at Strathcona CC.
