Setting Yourself Up For Success For The 2022 Gardening Season
Choose one of three on-farm, in-person course dates: September 11, 18 or 25
Most people start thinking about gardening in the spring, but there is no time like autumn to prepare your garden for next year’s growing season. Here at Local Harvest, the fall is a busy time.
We’re busy seeding for a fall and winter harvest. New areas are being made ready for spring seeding. Cover crops are sown. Mulch is spread around existing crops.
And perhaps, most importantly, compost is being made to nourish future crops.
In this six hour in-person course we’re going to help you get set up for success in next year’s garden.
We’ll touch on the basic principles of no-till, permaculture gardening and give you tried and proven methods for building soil fertility, improving yields, reducing pests and eliminating weeds. We’ll tour the farm to give context and provide real-life examples.
Here’s what we are going to cover in these sessions:
These on-farm sessions will go from 9am to 3pm with a 30 min. break. You can bring your own lunch or purchase a wood-fired pizza in our market.
The course will be held three times during the month of September, with a maximum of 20 participants per session. Available sessions will be removed once we reach capacity for each date.
Our farm and market are at 7697 Lickman Road, Chilliwack, BC V2R 4A7.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
