Workshops and information sessions – Dates to be announced.
Starting seeds indoors
Tricks, timing and recommendations for starting your seeds inside for future transplant.
We all discuss our growing season, what and when to start plants inside and what should be planted outside. Common problems with starting indoors and working out timing for the desired harvest date.
Heritage and Open pollinated seeds
Seeds are not all created equal. Some seeds are actually owned by corporations and saving those seeds can actually get you arrested.
Heritage and open-pollinated seeds are natural seeds which have been passed down for generations being replanted year after year. As we use these seeds, we create a seed through selective harvesting, custom to our own environment, increasing yields and viability for our climate.
Container and Raised Bed Gardening
Growing in containers and raised beds allows for a slightly longer growing season here in Northwest Ontario.
The basics creating a raised bed, growing in containers and an introduction to fabric container growing.
