Saturday August 11, 2018 (10:00 am – 1:00 pm) – weather permitting
Calling all who volunteers! Please join members of the FLT Society team on Saturday August 11, 2018 (weather permitting) to assist with maintaining the veggie garden plot and raised garden beds at Newman Farm.
In May 2018, we commenced the farm season with the necessary preparation of Newman Farm – setting up the water lines and planting veggies and flowers. We expanded our raised garden beds and veggie garden plot to reflect the range of produce in support of our on-going working relationship with Our Place Society via the “field to plate” initiative. Also, sunflowers and wildflowers have been planted to advance pollination activities at Newman Farm and the surrounding areas. Thank you to the volunteers who joined us on May 12 and May 26, 2018!
Key activities for our summer 2018 volunteer work parties include managing weeds, picking rocks, fertilizing the plants, and tidying up the garden plots and raised garden beds to support optimal growth.
Note: Please wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring your own gloves.
If you are interested in joining for our upcoming work parties, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided! Please advise of any dietary restrictions, food allergies or sensitivities to email@example.com.
Directions to Newman Farm: Please park near the Newman Farm access gate on Central Saanich Road, 1/2 km north of Mount Newton Cross Road - look for FLT Society lawn signs and balloons on the access gate.
