Workshops on Sustainable Living

with Small Footprint High Yield Gardening Intensives

May 20th & June 3rd

Chuckleberry Community Farm is a local year-round commercial producer of Certified Organic microgreens. Chuckleberry is pleased to share their discoveries of how to live a more wholesome, eco-friendly & sustainable life through two upcoming all-day gardening intensives.

Chuckleberry Farm has expanded its microgreen production from the Kootenays over into the Okanagan and beyond. The farm’s continuous expansion is because of inspired rigorous experimentation of both their growing practices and the community teamwork behind it all. Following up on last year’s three successful gardening workshops they are offering two — all-day, gardening intensives to help gardeners of all levels kick off the spring with inspiration and education for successful gardening practices to create your best gardens ever!

Participants will go home with a wealth of knowledge and experience, as well as, complimentary sturdy garden starts.
