Stay tuned… the planning team is banging together the final details and preparing the guidebook and map. We’re hoping that it will be ready by the weekend of July 31/August 1, at the following locations in Powell River:
- Breakwater Books
- Kingfisher Books
- Springtime Nursery
- Mother Nature
- Rainbow Valley Feed
- Open Air Market
It’s going to be a really interesting tour this year: lots of innovative approaches to gardening and growing food, and a few of the gardeners are overcoming some interesting challenges: one is gardening in a wheelchair; another has had to bring in or build almost all the soil in his garden, since he is gardening on a rocky outcropping; another two or three are older women gardening on their own and on a budget.
There are ten gardens in total, as well as one other stop of interest, where Master Composter Carol Engram will demonstrate her worm-composting operation. Once we have the guidebook ready, we’ll be letting people know.
Look for our lovely poster around the region (created by Giovanni Spezzacatena):
