From Start to Plant - First Gardening Workshop of 2013

From feedback received, current gardeners and newbie gardeners (which I still seem to fall into after three years of attempts) would like to see more direction and information offered by the Residents Association. This year we have developed almost monthly workshops that will take you step by step from planning to planting to harvest to winterization.

The first workshop will take place at Ralph Brown Community Centre on Sunday, February 17 from 2 - 4 pm. Registration is not required, but is requested, as we would love to know who is attending!

This workshop will have:

- An exercise to plan the layout of your garden
- Information on companion plants (ie. what plants will help others and which ones aren't so good for others)
- A brief 'how to' care for plants once in the ground (ie. how much work this plant will actually be)
- Information on when to start the seed for plants (This will have its own workshop in the early Springtime where seeds will be started, but some may need to be started earlier/later than that workshop)
- Select the plants you would like and we will be trying our best to get you those seeds

If you have any questions, or would like to register, please contact Rachel at 204-927-2340 or Madelaine at 204-290-4214.
