Garden Problem Solving Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Shady garden? Poor soil? Pests, disease, or weed problems? Only have a tiny space? If you think you don’t have the right space to grow your own food, think again! Learn how to troubleshoot and solve garden problems and make the best of your challenging growing situation to produce your own delicious veggies all season long!
This time our presenter is Mik Turje. Mik Turje has been working in community food and agriculture for over a decade. First as a small-scale organic farmer on Vancouver Island and in Richmond where they grew a variety of veggies for farmers markets, CSA’s and high-end grocery stores. Then as a community development worker in the food and urban agriculture movements. Mik was the Urban Agriculture Coordinator at The Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto for many years, where they taught a full slate of gardening workshops and mentored new gardeners, and also ran the Renfrew-Collingwood Food Security Institute for 3 years. Although Mik is now a social worker working in healthcare, they enjoy teaching gardening workshops on the side.
