We have begun the Spring Program in the community greenhouse. We meet weekly, Tuesdays at 11 am, and Thursdays at 5 pm. We will start each session with a brief Seed Swap and then start our potting mixes. The group will still need to decide what they would like to grow for their own gardens and for the beds in the Greenhouse. Contact Barry anytime at galianofoodprograms@gmail.com

Everyone welcome!

We had 10 people last year for Spring Starts and for the year-round crops and we hope to continue with the same plan. You can learn and share your knowledge about potting mixes and seeds. The group meets informally once or twice a week through the spring and summer. There is a watering schedule so there are daily visits by the participants to keep the plants well-watered. It is a teaching and learning environment so we have some teaching aids and good links to help further the skills of the Gardeners.

Inside, we grew tomatoes, eggplant, basil, peppers, melons and other seasonal vegetables. The planters outside the greenhouse are for runner beans and cucumbers. There are also ‘Seniors’ Beds’ which are used by a seniors group.

We charge $20 for participants in the greenhouse group. This includes all soil amendments, seeds pots, and tools, but people are still encouraged to bring their own. We will provide some handouts related to our activities.

For more information, contact Barry at 539-2364 or galianofoodprograms@gmail.com.

Join us at the Seed Swap at our first meeting on Tuesday March 15th at 1:00pm.

We will plan our growing space with seed catalogues and your own seeds to swap and share.

Jump-start your 2016 gardening year!
