Each year volunteers from the Nanaimo Community Gardens Society's Greenhouse site raise beautiful, well-grown herb, vegetable and flower seedlings. These seedlings are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides from non GMO seeds and are sold to backyard gardeners throughout Nanaimo and area. The May long weekend is traditionally the ideal time for planting out your tender, heat-loving annual vegetables. So join us to buy some plants and talk to the volunteers who have raised the little seedlings in our greenhouse. They can tell you exactly how the plants were grown and give you information on the varieties and how to grow them in your garden. And thanks to the Greenhouse volunteers who make this all possible!
This year, the Family Garden Days Plant Sale will be held May 18th and 19th from 10am to 3pm. The sale is at the Pine St Community Garden, 271 Pine St (the Foodshare Centre). There will be composting workshops, demonstrations, garden tours, music, children's activities and more.
