Can you dig it? Soil Composition Talk

By Laurier Major

A 30 minute intro session that will cover the average soil situation for most of the PSCG plots, what to look for and how to improve the conditions for your wee seedlings to take off into full bloom.

Bring a chair, park it on the ground or stand while fellow garden Laurier Major outlines what is needed to make your soil good to grow.

Sunday May 14 (prior to the work party). Arrive at 11:15, talk to begin at 11:30 at the Big Yellow Shed

This will be the first of a mini series and will set the stage for a Potato Growing workshop later on this season.

The Pine Street Community Gardens, established in 2006, runs for two blocks along side the railroad tracks on West 6th Avenue between Fir and Burrard.

Garden Side + Orchard Side

The western block of the gardens, what we call the Orchard Side, is one of Vancouver’s only urban orchards, featuring apple, pear, plum and many other varieties of fruit trees. The east block, or Garden Side, of the gardens is home to over 40 vegetable and garden plots.
