GCUOF Saturday Workshops, will be held at the GCUOF from 1-3 pm, beginning March 26, 2011. Workshops will be rescheduled in the case of a thunderstorm.

During the first workshop we will discuss your specific garden site and the best practices for growing in that spot.

Please bring photographs or sketches of your garden and a point form description, including any details you have on:

  • your soil (e.g. sandy, rocky, weedy or too wet),
  • orientation of  your garden (i.e. N-, S-, E-, or W-facing?),
  • wind speed and direction,
  • hours of full sun,
  • wildlife  or pests,
  • and any other relevant information.

This will help us determine how best to prepare your site and to choose the most suitable crops.

Subsequent workshops will emphasize soils, nutrient requirements, weed and seed issues, planting, harvesting, and storage.

Every workshop will involve seed-starting, and by planting time you will have your own seedlings ready to be transplanted into your garden.

Each workshop costs $30, a student discount is available with valid ID. You may register and pay in advance for any of the 11 workshops offered. Remaining spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis the day of the workshop.

You will be asked to sign a U of G waiver when you arrive on site.

To sign up for weeks that you are interested in, or for information about volunteer opportunities, send an email to Martha Gay Scroggins, GCUOF coordinator, at mscroggi@uoguelph.ca.
