Virtual Gardening Workshops - Fall 2020

Fall is both the end of the garden season when you can enjoy the bounty of your garden, and it's also a time to prepare for the coming year. Join the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre, the Edible Garden Project, Your Secret Chef, and Fluent Garden Consulting for a fall gardening series on Saturday mornings. This program is funded by the City of North Vancouver and hosted by the District of North Vancouver through the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre.

Recordings of the workshops will be available on the Ecology Centre website a few days after each workshop.
