So You Want to Grow a Garden
For those of us who dream of a beautiful garden, whether in a courtyard or big back yard, knowing how to achieve this goal can be daunting, and expensive. In this starter course, you will learn how to make a simple, workable plan–one that can lead to a simple yet beautiful, and in many cases, low-maintenance garden.
This is a fabulous opportunity for anyone who wants to start a garden in any kind of space to ask questions and gather information from experienced Master Gardener, Jo-Ann Canning.
This is a FREE two-session course. *Please register for BOTH sessions (March 22 & March 29) in advance by clicking on the REGISTER button, by calling 250-753-1154, or emailing NanaimoHarbourfront@virl.bc.ca*
