Canada Blooms: Herbs & Edibles

I gave a workshop/demonstration today at Canada Blooms on growing herbs and other edibles in a strawberry pot but I ran out of handouts. I wasn’t expecting such a great turnout! Thanks to everyone who came.

As promised I have posted a printable version of the handout here for those who missed out.

Thanks to Richters for the herbs and to Collette Murphy of Urban Harvest who supplied her fantastic organic fertilizers: “Kelp Meal” and “Green Wisdom Herbal Plant Food.”


Updated: Some photos from today’s workshop. I’ll be giving a presentation this Friday on Guerilla Gardening. Fri. March 10 (11:30 am). Or see me afterwards at the Toronto Botanical Gardens booth (on the 700 level) for book signing.

The tiny human picture.


The stage was so far back from the audience I invited people to come up afterwards to look at the project and the plants. Because really herbs are all about smelling and touching.

The Youth aka my most excellent assistant for the day Jay (who also took most of the pictures) want to say that the fake graffiti wall is kinda dumb/lame.
