West Kootenay EcoSociety and Nelson CARES Society present the 3rd annual Edible Garden Tour on Saturday, September 22 from 10 a.m to 2 p.m.
The tour focuses on what kinds of vegetables and fruits are growing and ready for harvest.
There will also be information on sustainable gardening, composting and watering techniques along with innovative and local food production in our community. This is an event for expert and beginner gardens alike.
The Edible Garden Tour is a self directed tour. Maps will be available at the Cottonwood Communoty Market, at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden, and online at www.ecosociety.ca.
Participate in the Earth Matters B.Y.O.B (Bring your own bulb) planting party at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden at 10:30 a.m. Come by to plant a bulb, or bring your own to donate to the community garden space. All events are family friendly.
The FOOD TREE permaculture team will also be offering workshops on the hour from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden. Topics will include pruning tips, seed saving, and more.
