Urban Farm Event

This looks like a great event coming up in November. 

Nov 10 2011 - 18:30

Can you make a living growing food?

Can you do it in the city?

Curtis Stone is coming to Victoria to answer both those questions with a resounding YES.

The event will be held at the Fernwood Community Centre, 1240 Gladstone Avenue, 
Victoria, BC V8T 1G6.

More info and registration here SPIN-Farming-Evening.

Fall Fairfield Fun

What a good time we had at Fall Fairfield today. The fog came and went, but we had so many people stop by the booth to chat and offer their support. A great day for the garden! Here's Jessica talking about community gardens while Bonnie Mae arranges some of the amazing veg that neighbours brought to share.

Fall Fairfield

The Community Garden Association will be at Fall Fairfield this Saturday and we want your veg! Bring your produce to our table and show it off. We're looking for beautiful veg, the pride of your garden, best veg arrangement, and rare or heirloom varieties.

There will be prizes!

We need Letters

Anybody Got a Truck?

Do you have a truck? Do you know anybody who has a truck?

A friend with a truck is a wonderful thing for a truckless school or community garden.

If anyone has a truck that we could use for about two hours, please let us know. Email me
