Hello fellow gardeners,
The pleasant winter weather continues, and you can sense spring just around the corner. Time to turn our attention to the business of gardening.
Here are a few updates for the upcoming growing season, as well as important information on how to register and pay for your garden beds for the 2019 growing season:
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
All new and returning gardeners are asked to complete our online sign-up registration form in order to secure your bed(s) for the coming year. This sign-up form also allows you to pay for your garden bed(s) online using your credit card.
The deadline for garden registration and fee payment is our Meet & Greet event in early April.
As always, the garden beds you were allocated in 2018 are yours for 2019!
MEET & GREET EVENT
The garden is open year-round, but our official Meet & Greet event will take place sometime in early April (TBA in the next newsletter). This event is a fun one and not to be missed––be sure to look out for it!
The Meet & Greet also serves as the final deadline for Garden Registration and Payment.
If we haven't received your online sign-up info and payment by this time, your beds will be offered to a gardener on our wait list. If you wish to pay your Gardener Fees with cash or cheque, the event is a great time to deliver this method of payment.
GARDEN TIPS: DAYDREAMING YOUR GARDEN
We're still about a month away from ideal seeding conditions for most early spring crops (like radishes, spinach, mustard, kale and lettuce), but there's nothing wrong with planning ahead. Here's the Coastal BC veggie planting guide from West Coast Seeds to peruse in the mean time!
