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