Last month, we were thrilled to kick off our “Heart & Soil Conversation Series” with a virtual talk on Garden Planning, led by Rachel Snelgrove, Farm Associate at the Pye Centre.
Rachel covered the fundamentals of creating low-maintenance, productive home gardens, including:
- Companion planting, to reduce weeds, pests, and diseases, and to promote pollination and production;
- Succession planting, to keep a steady flow of fresh produce from your garden to your kitchen; and
- Crucial steps of saving and sprouting seeds.
Over 20 people attended, with folks tuning in from Happy Valley-Goose Bay to St. John’s, and all the way to the Yukon and Ontario. What a delight it was to share gardening knowledge with each other!
