Importance of the topic
Have a backyard and do not know how to convert it into a food garden? Or that front yard with perfect sunlight but worry about the look of having tomato trellis? What about those beautiful garden boxes you’ve always wanted to make?

What will the workshop cover?
This workshop focuses on designing gardens and growing food outdoors around your house or in a community garden setting, without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. It is good for both beginners or intermediate gardeners who have questions or want to confirm their practices growing food in the Ottawa region.
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!
