Free Event – Saturday May 7, 12 to 1 PM
Location: 7697 Lickman Road, Chilliwack, BC V2R 4A7
On west-end of market building, near the wood-fired pizza oven.
Andrew will be demonstrating how to build a living soil planter using a sub-irrigated planter system suitable for growing food and medicine indoors or outdoors.
Sub irrigated planters (SIPs) mimic nature by providing a pristine underground water source that allows plants to drink when they want to, not when we think they’re thirsty.
This results in healthier and stronger plants allowing them to better express their genetic potential and results in a significant reduction in evaporation.
The session will start with a 30 minute demonstration followed by 30 minutes of Q&A.
Andrew will be showcasing a 3×3 planter similar to the one pictured below courtesy of LifeSpace Gardens in North Vancouver…
