Want to get your hands in the dirt and give a ­little love to some ­deserving gardens?

Fernwood NRG will be hosting a garden workparty on Thursday, June 17th between 1pm and 4pm. The workparty tasks will focus on giving the community orchard a post winter rejuvenation.

Tasks will include: weeding, sheet mulching, and refreshing garden paths. On top of having a great opportunity to learn about ­permaculture and to help build the food security networks in your community, we will be serving up snacks as a thank you to our wonderful volunteers.

We will be observing Covid-19 ­protocols at the workparty, so we ask that anyone hoping to get involved bring their own gloves, mask, and water bottle (refills will be available). We will have some tools ­available as well as a sanitizing station; however, we would love for people to bring their own tools, if possible, so that we can limit the number of high contact surfaces that people will be exposed to.

If you are interested in forming new connections within your community and your food system please contact bronte@fernwoodnrg.ca to express your interest in registering for our June garden workparty!

A huge thank you to the City of Victoria for their support through the Community Garden Volunteer Coordinator Grant and Micro Grant.
