Event Description

The Teaching garden workshops provide practical gardening knowledge as well as some of the theory behind organic techniques of growing food throughout the year. They give families the opportunity to learn & practice their newly acquired skills before trying on their own home garden plot. Each session we cover topics relevant to the season.

This session our new garden will be bursting with food! Lets enjoy it while we talk about water and pest management strategies.

Instructor: Grant Watson operates Grant's Gourmet Gardens, an edible landscaping business. He teaches gardening primarily at Hastings CC and Langara College.

Cost: $12 per adult, childminding $5

To register call Hastings CC at 604-718-6222.
