Growing food from seed is the least expensive and most rewarding way to plant your vegetable garden.

During this interactive talk, you’ll learn which seed varieties to choose, how to plant and grow them on a balcony, as well as selecting water-wise choices that can survive dry summers. Explore year-round veggie options, and taste and examine different samples of home grown veggies such as beans, peas, carrots and beets. Finally, visit VanDusen’s veggie Garden to have a look at what’s growing and inspire your gardening plans for next season.
