Special Events

May 23, 2015:  Presentation and workshop on Soil.  Come to Dorset Ontario to hear our presentation and workshop on soil.  This is a 3 hour event to learn more about the soil in your garden.  We start with a presentation on key elements of soil followed by Q&A.  After the break we will tour the Dorset community gardens and experience the look and feel of the soil in the garden.  From there we will proceed indoors again for a workshop where you will do exercises to better understand what to look for in your own garden soil.  If you wish, bring a mason jar of some of your own garden soil.  Will be held at the Timberframe Portico, Dorset, located off Hwy 35 just north of the Hwy 117 turnoff.
