If you are into growing tomatoes and cucumbers, you can maximize your harvest by growing vertically and using a few important pruning techniques. Whether you're growing in a community garden plot, balcony containers, or a small yard, this workshop will help you maximize the harvest. Learn techniques Holly Rooke, Loutet Farmer, uses to maximize crop yields - you can use them too!
Holly Rooke is the farm manager at Loutet Farm in North Vancouver. After a few years fine-tuning her skills as an apprentice at Cropthorne Farm in Ladner, BC, she joined the Edible Garden Project, first as Farmer, now as Farm Manager. At Cropthorne Farm she was trained by expert greenhouse growers in pruning and trellis techniques. Holly believes that growing your own food is an incredibly empowering and rewarding experience, and that food growing spaces are some of the best venues for people to get engaged and involved in their community. Her favourite veggie is garlic!
