Day of the Bee (May 29, 2010)
Borno Garden Tour (August 29, 2009)
Thank you to Don and Linda Borno for a fantastic morning walk through their lush and bountiful vegetable garden. We learned a lot about their Community Supported Agriculture business (Veggie Bins) and saw how they were able to provide so many Vanderhoof residents with their healthy produce.
Greenhouse Tours (July 25, 2009)
hank you to Tara Beal (From Nechako Valley Organics), Glenn and Sarah Sensiger and family, Judy and Gary Blattner, Valerie and Allan Pagdin, and Henry and Donna Klassen for sharing their greenhouses/gardens with us! (Also, thanks to Henry and Donna Klassen for holding the potluck supper at their place.)
We saw many different ideas for greenhouses, some of which include incorporating a children's play area (plastic kitchen) with walls made of sunflowers in one greenhouse (sunflower cottage), moss used for moderating water in greenhouse. Other great ideas were having petunias planted in a greenhouse to attract bees and butterflies, rocks placed in a different greenhouse to use as a heat sink.
We also saw different strands of wheat growing outside (4X4 experimental wheat plot at Blattners, which was very interesting to see.
