Description

Please join us for the annual Salmon Friendly Gardens Seminar, hosted by LEPS in conjunction with the Township of Langley Grow Healthy Grow Smart program.

Grow Healthy Grow Smart aims to reduce or eliminate the use of cosmetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers, for the benefit of salmon habitat, wildlife, and pollinators in our community. This event focuses on raising citizen awareness of environmentally sustainable gardening techniques.

This year’s seminar has presentations provided by:

Dr. Elizabeth Elle "The Buzz on Bees: Why they are declining, and what we can plant for them"

Dr. Elizabeth Elle is Professor and Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University. Her research is aimed at protecting pollinators and enhancing pollination services to wildflowers and crops. There has been quite a bit of press about pollinator declines--this presentation will introduce you to the diversity of these hard-working insects (450 species of bee in BC!), help you understand why some of them are in trouble, and give you practical advice about how to choose plants to create or enhance garden habitat to feed the bees.

Andrea Bellamy "Incredible Edibles in Containers — Small-Space Vegetable Gardening 101"

Andrea Bellamy is the author of Small-Space Vegetable Gardens: Growing Great Edibles in Containers, Raised Beds, and Small Plots, gardening columnist for Edible Vancouver and Wine Country magazine, and the creator of HeavyPetal.ca. She has a certificate in garden design from the University of British Columbia. She lives in East Vancouver, where she grows a wide range of organic edibles with her husband and children.
