Winter Gardening: Growing Food Through a West Coast Winter
It's time to get ready for winter! That's right, if you want a productive food growing garden through the winter then you need to plan ahead and get started early. Save a little space in your garden, and join local expert and farmer, Holly Rooke, to learn about growing hardy food crops in the depths of our West Coast winters.
In this workshop you will learn:
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. 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!
