What Is Community Gardening?
Would you like to eat healthy and save money on groceries? You can live a more sustainable and active lifestyle by joining the ‘Growing Your Own Food Bank’ Community Gardening Club.
Group participants work together to grow and cultivate flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables at a nearby park. Along with practical hands-on experience, participants also gain insight from experienced gardeners during workshops covering various indoor and outdoor urban gardening methods such as: Traditional Soil Gardening, Hydroponic Gardening (growing without soil), Tower Gardening (growing plants vertically), and Aquaponics (growing plants in a live fish tank).
Participants will construct their own take home gardening box, and celebrate their efforts by enjoying food picked directly from the Community Garden. Space is limited, sign-up today!
