Thank you to all of our gardeners, work party comrades, board members, workshop attendees, e-mail subscribers, facebook likers, and all other contributors for your support this semester at the Campus Community Garden.
This semester has been really enjoyable. We have successfully hosted a Fall harvest party, built a new gazebo, expanded our permaculture beds, and hosted workshops on pie-making, permaculture, and seed saving!
We anticipate 2014′s garden events including a Deconstructing Dinner discussion with Jon Steinman on February 5, canning and preserves, hot composting, propagation with perennial shrubs, mason bee care with local native bee expert Gord Hutchins, and garden tool care!
Please keep in touch with us in the new year by joining our mailing list and following us on Facebook.
We got down to business this weekend to discuss garden updates and future plans – new signage, workshops, liasons with other groups. If you’re interested, read more about it below.
