Introduction to Gardening Workshop

2015/03/19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Gardening can be a simple, enjoyable, and bountiful practice. It is possible to grow anywhere: from small urban balconies to 100 acre farms. This introduction workshop will prepare you with the concepts and strategies you need as a first time gardener to start growing your own food or landscape plants this summer. There will be a little bit of basic horticulture theory, followed by strategies for you to grow your first garden in a backyard, community garden, or balcony. Everyone will have a chance to try planting a sunflower for you to take home.

In preparation for the reopening of the Kitiganensag, the GSA-Carleton Community Garden, the Graduate Students’ Association is hosting FREE workshops for students, staff, faculty and the larger community. All workshops take place in the Grad Lounge, located on the 6th floor of the University Centre Building. No registration necessary – just show up and bring your enthusiasm!
