…and away we grow!

The garden is rapidly transforming! It is very exciting to see all the interesting design elements and hear about what we  are all planning to grow. There is a great energy in the garden right now and that can only be helping the plants!
A hearty ‘Thanks’ to the garden gnomes who have been doing the weeding in the garlic patch and the organization in the shed!!! Very much appreciated folks.

Thanks to volunteers last Sunday morning some of the beds have been seeded and transplants put in. We were small but we were mighty! What a glorious morning it was!

Calling all of our creativegardeners …we are hoping to design and plant an edible flower garden patch at the top of the farm portion of the garden.We have seeds and transplants available. We would like this to be a gathering place for our impromptu potlucks but also a pretty spot to sit on a bench and relax with a cold drink after working in your plot and just a quiet place to enjoy the plants.  Please let us know if this is something that interests you!

The Water totes have been put into place and the water connection finally made. It is wonderful to finally have a source of water down on the farm! No more hauling jugs of water from home and from the Athletic Centre. Hallelujah is the best word that comes to mind!

Stay up to date with farm activities on our website! We try to keep up with the blog and post photos from time to time too!

Have you registered for our next workshop? Introduction to Permaculture Design It is Friday June 17th from 6 – 9:00 at the lovely Irving Centre on campus. It is going to be a terrific program on permaculture presented by the Big Sky permaculture folks.

This weekend there is an exciting event  called the New Farmers Gathering organized at the Lorax. Have a look at the workshops and events they have planned!!
