Workshops on pest management and self watering containers

June 23rd 2018. 13:00 to 16:30

Black Creek Garden Resource Network would like to invite you to two free workshops on June 23 (Saturday), 1:00-4:30 PM at Black Creek Community Farm. 
Workshop 1 (1-2:30 PM): Pest Management in the Garden with Jim Barnett, Master Gardener

We will learn how to maintain a healthy vegetable garden to prevent pests and diseases as well as use natural ways to deter and control them. Jim will take us on a stroll around the farm to identify problems and how to address them.  

Workshop 2 (2:45-4:30 PM): How to build a Self-watering Container Garden with Marina Pucci

If you live in a small space or want to grow plants on a balcony or you travel often and worried about your plants then you can take advantage from a self-watering system.  Marina will talk about the benefits of self-container gardens, demonstrate how to make a self-watering container box and do group container planting in the farmhouse balcony. 
Please bring a snack or baked goods to share with the group. As we will be strolling and working outside, dress according to weather conditions. 

Please RSVP to Mildred Agsaoay at or call 416-393-6381. The first 25 people to register will get a spot.
