Gardening workshops in Kingston

Be sure to head to the Sunnyside Garden Party this Saturday, June 18th for good food, good folks, and good workshops!

Square Foot Gardening – June 18th, 11am-12pm, Sunnyside Community Garden (on MacDonnell at Brock)
Square Foot Gardening is a condensed, all natural method of gardening that grows more food in less space, with less time, less water and less work. Learn more about this innovative approach to urban gardening in a one hour workshop facilitated by Wess Garrod of WillGrow Gardens, and see a sample garden close up.

Garlic Growing and Natural Pest Control – June 18th, 1-2 pm, Sunnyside Community Garden (on Madonnell at Brock)
