Just in time for planting your Summer and Winter garden planting, the Ladysmith Saltair Garden Club is pleased to host Carolyn Herriot for a two-part talk on Edible Gardening. Carolyn is a passionate gardener, speaker and author of ‘The Zero Mile Diet, A Year Round Guide to Growing Organic Food’ and ‘The Zero-Mile Diet Cookbook – Seasonal Recipes for Delicious Homegrown Food‘ (Harbour Publishing). She has recently relocated to Yellow Point where she is planting an edible rockery garden. Her IncrEdibles! are seedlings, ready to go into your garden.
May 21st: IncrEdibles! – Growing your way to Better Health
Now that we understand the link between diet and good health it is even more important to join the ‘Grow Your Own Food’ movement. In this inspiring talk Carolyn shares tips and techniques for creating edible landscapes that provide abundant vegetables, fruits and herbs year-round to feed your family the best that nature has to offer – locally! IncrEdibles! will be available for sale at this time.
September 17th: Saving Your Own Food Seeds – Everything You Need is in the Kitchen
There’s no such thing as sustainable food production unless we have the seeds with which to grow the food. Carolyn has operated ‘Seeds of Victoria’ since 1991 and was instrumental in launching Seedy Saturdays across Vancouver Island to facilitate the collection and sharing of local food seeds for future food security. In this talk she shows you how easy it is to save seeds and money at the same time. IncrEdibles! winter vegetables will be available for sale at this talk.
Bring a mug for the coffee break, a little something for the Food Bank box, and return library books.
Doors open at 6:30, meeting at 7, at
St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church Hall,
Corner of Buller Street and 3rd Avenue, Ladysmith.
