Lakeside open house: workshops, work party & pizza

Join us on Saturday September 21st for Lakeside Community Garden’s open house.

Planting the strawberry patch

Workshop: an introduction to fruit tree guilds

A fruit tree guild is an edible plant community with a fruit (or nut) tree at the centre. Learn how to combine multi-functional plant species in layers to create a beautiful plant community that not only provides you with food, but supports pollinators and birds, stores water, improves soil fertility, increases pest resistance and captures carbon.

10:00 – 11:30 am

Garden work party and free pizza for volunteers  

Join us in between workshops for a free pizza lunch and to help with garden jobs including mulching pathways, weeding and turning compost. Please bring reusable water bottles and gardening gloves.  

11:00 am – 1:00 pm
