VanDusen Botanical Garden
5251 Oak Street, Vancouver, British Columbia V6M4H1
This course will take place entirely outside in VanDusen’s vegetable garden, giving participants a living window of knowledge into a food garden. Claire will use garden examples to discuss: which pests and diseases are a concern and how they are dealt with organically, harvest techniques and timing, good companions in the garden, and which plants are doing double duty as a beneficial insect attractant, natural pest repellent, or soil improver. Learn great ideas, solutions, and how to implement them in your own garden. Limited to 15 students. Class starts with a 20 minute walk to the veggie garden.
Cost: Member $40.50 / Non-member $45
