Although my frontyard garden is sort of coming to a close, the reality is, growing veggies isn’t just for the summer. Many veggies (read that as kale) benefit from maturing over the winter and harvesting in the spring. As well, our mild west-coast climate allows gardeners to grow and harvest over the winter season with limited protection.
Coquitlam’s Inspiration Garden, located at the corner of Guildford Way and Pipeline Road, in Town Centre Park is hosting a Zero Mile Diet workshop on planting for fall and winter, on Saturday, August 23 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The workshop is hosted by Roberta Ward, a red seal certified gardener with over 30 years of experience. Participants will leave the course with knowledge on what to plant, how to plant it, and how to protect it over the winter.
