Importance of the topic
Want to grow vegetables and herbs on your balcony or window sill? Container gardening is a great way of growing food if you know how. Small space can be very productive if you learn a few things about how to design it.
Meet the Facilitator
Bee Vaillancourt is a gardener, farmer and yoga teacher. She has worked on all kinds of gardening settings both in Canada and internationally, small and big, and gets invited back for her gardening teaching sessions! Bee helps gardeners to design their food gardens as a profession and is happy to share her extensive knowledge.
What will the workshop cover?
This workshop focuses on using small space and light for growing food INDOORS, or on your BALCONY, without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Both beginners or intermediate gardeners can learn the basics and get useful tips on planting and harvesting your own pots of fresh produce!
How will the workshop be structured?
This interactive online webinar will begin with a “classroom session” with lots of pictures, followed by a demonstration and Q&A with the instructor. *Note that there will be a chat feature which you will be able to use to ask questions during the workshop!
