Design a Garden Bed -- A Workshop by Toni Boot

On Saturday, September 13, 9am to 12noon, Toni Boot of Grasslands Nursery will conduct a Garden Bed Design workshop at the Gardens. Using the Gardens own beds as examples, Toni will give you the information you need to design a garden bed yourself.

Fee: $35, including materials and refreshments.

Limited attendance: please pre-register by Wednesday, September 10 so we will have sufficient materials on hand.

Weedy Wednesdays (and Saturdays)

Every Wednesday & Saturday, June through September

Work with expert gardeners, and learn as you go along. No experience necessary!

Join us for an hour or two, or more, and help keep the Gardens looking beautiful.
Our 6 hectares requires lots of labour! Even a couple of hours of your time will make a difference! We look forward to seeing you in the Gardens.

There are many gardening opportunities for those who have a special interest in a particular plant such as Daylilies, Roses, Dahlias Grasses, annuals or perennials. We have beds that would greatly benefit from some extra TLC.

This season Wilma and Trina are working in the Gardens Tuesday to Saturday, and they look forward to welcoming volunteers on Wednesdays or Saturdays (or both), or on any of our special work parties.

Just give Wilma and Trina a call to let them know you are coming (leave a message), 250-494-6385.
