Workshops on pest management and self watering containersJune 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-393-6381. The first 25 people to register will get a spot.
