Thursday September 3rd is our first meeting of the fall.
Our presentation this month will focus on Winter Gardening with our host Lucie Desjarlais sharing her 15 year experience growing winter gardens in the Comox Valley.
Lucie owns Stotan Falls Farm with partner Ian and sons Simon & Robin.
Vegetable seeds and seed garlic are the main crops, supplying among others, Salt Spring Seeds company. Harvesting food all year round is one of her passions – and reason for living here – fostering a growing hands-on experience on winter gardening.
An animated and practical, no-nonsense teacher, Lucie is pleased to share her knowledge so we can ALL enjoy fresh garden treasures during the “off” season, starting this fall which is right now!
Sylvain will also share a few seed saving techniques that may prove useful at this time of the year.
There will also be plenty of time to discuss successes and challenges from this summer’ s gardening season.
Meeting is at Creekside Communs, 2202 Lambert St , Courtenay at 7pm
