A Garden Workshop in Steinbach

Fruit Share Steinbach is affiliated with a group called South Eastman Transition Initiative (SETI). This is the transition movement in Steinbach that focuses on growing and buying local, encouraging community, and sharing how to tread more lightly on our planet. Fruit Share as a program fits extremely well into our Transition group because Fruit Share focuses on picking local fruit and sharing it within the community.

SETI has regular monthly meetings on the fourth Thursday of every month. This month’s meeting has an organic gardening theme. I encourage you to join us and learn about:

  • Basic planting, weeding, and seeding techniques.
  • Sheet mulching instead of tilling sod to prepare you garden.
  • Companion planting, crop rotation, mulching, and green manure.
  • Flat gardens vs. raised beds.

Where: Steinbach at the allotment gardens behind the Steinbach Mennonite Church, 345 Loewen Blvd. We’ll find a room in the church if the weather does not co-operate.

When: Thursday April 26, 2012

Time: 7:00 pm

Please send me an email if you need directions or any extra information.
