This Saturday celebrate locally grown food.

Edible Garden Tour returns on Saturday to Nelson

West Kootenay EcoSociety and Nelson CARES Society present the third annual Edible Garden Tour on Saturday

West Kootenay EcoSociety and Nelson CARES Society present the third annual Edible Garden Tour on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Find out what kinds of vegetables and fruits are growing and ready for harvest. Check out sustainable gardening, composting and watering techniques. Learn about innovative and local food production in our community. This is an event for expert and beginner gardeners alike.

The Edible Garden Tour is self-directed. Maps will be available at the Cottonwood Community Market, at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden, and online at ecosociety.ca.

Participate in the Earth Matters B.Y.O.B (bring your own bulb) planting party at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden at 10:30 a.m. Come by to plant a bulb, or bring your own to donate to the community garden space. All events are family friendly.

The Food Tree permaculture team will also be offering workshops on the hour from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hendryx Street Forest Garden. Topics will include pruning tips, seed saving, and more.

For more information, go to ecosociety.ca. For questions about the planting party or to make a bulb donation, contact Alison at 250-352-6011, ext 15.
