Spring is (supposedly) here in Toronto, which means it’s time to start talking about gardening! As a result, I’ve got a bunch of confirmed events on the roster in Toronto over the next few weeks.
Saturday, March 28, 2009. 1:30 pm
I’m calling this a plant-along rather than a workshop since the aim of this workshop is primarily to walk members of our Seedling Growing Collective as well as members of the greenhouse we are sharing through the ins and outs of starting seeds and caring for seedlings. I will be starting my own seeds as well, so in that sense it is not a workshop but more of a communal effort with some discussion and instruction added on.
I’m not yet sure if this is only open to our group and greenhouse members, but I will confirm for future dates. However, if you are curious about the greenhouse, it will be open to the public that evening at 8:30pm in celebration of Earth Hour.
Toronto Horticultural Society: Small, Urban Potager
Monday, March 30, 2009. 7pm
I’ll be speaking about growing beautiful food gardens in small and difficult spaces. I’ve been told that non-members are welcome to come out for this event and it is free to attend.
Sunday, April 5, 2009. 9am-4pm
I’ll be talking about growing urban food gardens, telling stories, and showing photographs of my own gardens as well as other urban food gardens I have visited.
This talk is a part of a larger event with other speakers and costs $35 to attend (includes lunch).
You’ll need to register ahead of time with Seeds of Diversity in order to attend.
