Movement Through Gardening

February 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Growing your own food has immeasurable benefits. It gets your body moving, it has incredible benefits to your mental health, and of course you get to enjoy nutritious vegetables. Think you don’t have the right space to grow your own food? Think again! Whether your space is small, shady, on a balcony, or has poor soil, you’ll learn how to make the best of your challenging growing situation and produce your own delicious veggies all season long!
Mik Turje has been working in community food and agriculture for over a decade. First as a small-scale organic farmer on Vancouver Island and in Richmond where they grew a variety of veggies for farmers markets, CSA’s and high-end grocery stores. Then as a community development worker in the Food and Urban Agriculture movement. Mik was the Urban Agriculture Coordinator at The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto for many years, where they taught a full slate of gardening workshops and mentored new gardeners. Mik now runs a small food security organization in Renfrew-Collingwood.

This workshop is hosted by the University Neighbourhoods Association.

This event is free and no registration is required.
