LATEST FROM THE FARM — Learn to Garden
We are now only nine weeks away from the May long weekend, which is the traditional outdoor planting weekend here in Ottawa. Even though it’s still too early to get gardening outside, there are lots of garden tasks that you can begin inside right now to set your garden up for great success this season!
Growing food is our passion, and it's a passion that we want to share in every way possible. This is why for the second year running we’re bringing you our Farmer to Gardener webinar series; an opportunity to share our veg growing knowledge with all of the enthusiastic home gardeners out there! Whether you have been growing food for years, or are just starting out, Farmer Jo will have tips and tricks to take your vegetable garden to the next level.

Tending a garden is a perfect example of how one needs to focus on the journey, not just the destination. Gardening isn’t simply about the final harvest, it’s about all of the care, thought, and attention put into it throughout the course of the season. Getting out into your garden on a regular basis allows for mindful presence, a connection to the earth and natural environment, and builds a relationship with your plants. This presence, along with regular maintenance, will allow you, and your garden, to bloom.
