Courtenay community garden hosting workshop June 20

Learn how choosing the right plants to grow with your fruit trees can support your garden

Share the Harvest Community Garden, located in downtown Courtenay, will be hosting a workshop called Planting a Fruit Tree Guild on Wednesday, June 20, from 6-8 p.m. Learn how choosing the right plants to grow with your fruit trees can support your garden in multiple ways. We will explore how to create a fruit tree guild, including plant choices and specific benefits you can aim for in your design. We will turn an overgrown, depleted garden into a well-nourished fruit tree guild so come prepared to be active! Please bring your own lawn chair if needed.

Workshop is by donation and will be led by Emma Hutchinson who is formally trained in ecological gardening, permaculture design, and ecological landscape design. Everyone welcome.

We are located on the corner of 6th street and Harmston Ave.
