Posted Thursday, July 3, 2014

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) is pleased to announce the second free, garden workshop of 2014 on Wednesday, July 9th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Join local composting enthusiast, Dave Weatherill, for a one hour workshop titled Simply Composting.

This workshop will focus on backyard composting techniques and highlight how easy composting can be. The workshop is free to attend, all ages are welcome, and pre-registration is not required. All workshop attendees will be entered in a draw for a free composter, so do not miss out!

For those unable to attend the workshop, remember to visit the Xerindipity Demonstration Garden located next to the Okanagan Science Centre in Vernon’s Polson Park. The Garden is open during regular Polson Park hours, seven days a week from May through October. Come down and enjoy the shade of the gazebo, gain ideas for outdoor planting, and view the composters on display.

The third free garden workshop, Permaculture In Action, is scheduled for Wednesday, August 13th from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
