Edible Garden and Farm Tour focuses on water

Cowichan Green Community’s Edible Garden and Farm Tour will take place on Saturday, July 9

Cowichan Green Community’s Edible Garden and Farm Tour will take place on Saturday, July 9 this year starting at 10 a.m. and running until 3 p.m.

This event gives everyone the chance to both see and learn from a group of enthusiastic farmers and gardeners.

The 2016 tour will feature water-wise gardening and farming techniques at seven different gardens and farms.

The self-guided tour will show how edible landscapes can form through a combination of passion and good, old-fashioned elbow grease, say organizers.

Attendees are given the chance to meet the hands behind the shovels, and take away gardening secrets, tips, and timely techniques for growing food in drought conditions.

Farms include Jake Vanderwerf, Mossy Banks, Haley Atchison, Romney Farm, Winter Rill Farm, Lynn Sanderson and Alex Mann, and Alan Philip and Sandy McPherson.

Tickets are $20 each at the Garden Pantry Store at 360 Duncan St. For more information contact Alyssa at 250-748-8506, or alyssa@cowichangreencommunity.org.
