This Sunday, April 26 – Small Space Gardening

Port Moody Winter Farmers Market Workshop Series Part 4 (2)

Please note the Small Space Gardening Workshop has been postponed to next Sunday, April 26. Tickets already purchased are still valid. If you have purchased a ticket and you are unable to attend next week, please email riccardo@makebakegrow.com.

Learn hands on about starting your own small space garden. Rachel Elves from Burquitlam Community Organic Garden Society and Green Zebra Markets in Vancouver will lead you through building your own DIY self-watering planter. With this cheap to make and easy to replicate planter, you can leave your plants to self water for quite a while. This workshop is perfect for those who might not have the time to garden often or possibly want to add to their existing garden without adding to the workload! The event will be outside and you may be handling messy materials so dress appropriately. Registration is $10 but you can pick up $10 worth of market coins when you check in at the info table. This workshop series is brought to you by the kind folks at Vancity. Register for one of two times, 10:30 or noon, at Eventbrite.

Also at the market this week are local musicians, Caitlin and Catherine. Caitlin has been singing and playing guitar since she was 12 and is passionate about sharing her love of music with others.
