HERITAGE GARDENERS EDUCATION NIGHT:
Designing and Laying Out a Food Garden with Melanie Alkins
Wednesday, March 12, 2014
LOCATION: Discovery North Bay Museum
100 Ferguson St.
You are invited to share in a Free Evening of Education with the Heritage Gardeners.
On Wednesday, March 12, 2014, the topic will be Designing and Laying Out a Food Garden with Melanie Alkins..
Melanie Alkins is a biologist by training, by profession and by nature.
Her life-long love of the natural world and learning has made her a student of life, especially life in the garden!
Mel has a passion for growing not only her own food, but also food for others.
Her experience to date has involved small plot gardening to both market garden and CSA.
Melanie’s presentation will cover ideas like where to site your vegetable garden considering the soil, sunlight and the water supply you have available.
Also covered will be the size and shape of your garden and options beyond straight rows.
Ideas to make life easier in the garden will be a central theme.
Gardening along the path of least resistance is Mel motto for producing food from your garden!
Her enthusiasm for the topic will have you anxious for spring and her ‘give it try approach’ will end your intimidation of the topic.
A Master Gardener will be on hand to answer any gardening or plant related questions that you may have.
This session is free but donations are always welcome.
Participants may also wish to participate in the twoonie raffle in support of Heritage Gardeners.
Participants must pre-register by Tuesday, March 11 by noon, by calling 705-472-4006 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
