Urban Alchemy: Barren Boulevards to Food Forests, Thurs Sept 8, 6-8 pm

Rainey Hopewell and Margot Johnson, the birth mothers of the Haultain Common will give an inspiring tour of their boulevard and backyard gardens.  They will speak about all aspects of the process of transforming dead urban space to thriving community food sources, from dealing with city regulations to nursing barren soil back to life.  They will also talk about the food forest model of permaculture, and how to build a food forest of your own by making use of natural systems and vertical space to make the most out of your garden.

Boulevard gardening is a fantastic project for urban dwellers who want to build community, nourish their whole neighbourhood, and make the most food in the least space.  Don’t miss the chance to learn how it’s done!

Location:  the Haultain Common, the corner of Haultain  & Asquith, Victoria, BC
