As stated we are trying for a winter garden as Hasting-Surise donated some wonderful seeds for our project. Have a friend and community urban planner who may be able to get us a truck but am having trouble locating your farmer's number via this site again. Please re-forward, wonder if its the same supplier Jana used. Their families' garden is inspirational! I am awaiting info from her as well.re mushroom manure suppliers.
We are interested in getting some Mushroom manure for our winter garden for our non-profit housing near VGH. Our community garden is roughly 10 by 10 feet. Called your gentleman farmer however it is out of our price range. Any left over that you'd be willing to share?
I'm just back from vacation - did you see the workshop postings on the events (home)? There's a workshop on Sept 13th in your neighbourhood (HS). If you'd like to register, please let me know. (There are also workshops in Main St/Riley Park on the 20th, and Kits on Oct 6th.)
We should know new workshop dates in a day or two. The best place to look is on the events page. We'll also send you a notice.
There are number of chicken folk in your neighbourhood. Just running out the door now, but will let them know that you're interested in connecting. I'll also suggest starting a coop co-op group in Hastings Sunrise.
