Shuswap Community Teaching Garden - 2018

Hello Friends of the Shuswap Community Teaching Garden,
Time to get thinking of gardening. Attached you will find a calendar for March and April of activities up at the Garden. You can also find these calendars on the Shuswap Family Centre’s Facebook page as well as the Shuswap Community Teaching Garden’s Facebook page. Here is what is upcoming:
This Saturday March 24th from 10am – Noon there are volunteers needed for Deer Fence Building. We will be extending the original fencing. No building experience is required. Bring your own hammer and cordless drill if you have one.
For more information please contact the Shuswap Family Centre or contact Ebony. 250-832-2170.


Let’s get growing!

After almost 2 years of planning, we are pleased to announce that the new community garden is nearly ready for it’s first season of growing food for our community!

This garden is a joint partnership between the Shuswap Food Action Co-op and the Shuswap Family Resource Centre and will operate differently than traditional style community gardens. Rather than having plots for individuals to rent, the garden will be used by the Family Resource Centre and Immigration Services to grow food by and for thier members and groups.

We are still in need of a few items to get us started. We are seeking donations of the following items:
*garden tools
*work gloves
*picnic table, benches or other seating
*shade umbrellas
*garbage bins

Sponsors will be advertised on the garden signage. We sincerely appreciate all donations.
Individuals interested in volunteering at the garden of making donations should contact Ebony Vardal at the Shuswap Family Resource Centre for more information.
