Chuckleberry Community Farm is now offering workshops on four season gardening, growing great garlic and year round micro-green production for families. “I’m inspired to share our discoveries about how to live life more sustainably by growing our own food all year round and its really not that hard” says Chuckleberry founder Jon Scott.

This fall, the Chuckleberry Community is hosting two workshops led by Jon and other community members with a focus on more sustainable living through high yield food production. Jon Scott has been facilitating spiritual/personal growth workshops and individual counselling for 25 years here in the Kootenays.

The workshops take place at Chuckleberry Community Farm located only a 15 minute drive from Nelson nestled on a south facing mountainside in sunny Beasley. Each workshop is from 10 am - 4:30 pm and will include a delicious organic buffet lunch prepared on-site with many ingredients picked fresh from the gardens by Chuckleberry chef, Maxi. Maxi also entertains with live music during lunch!

Upcoming workshop dates are as follows:

• October 1 – Four Season Gardening & Growing Great Garlic Workshop: $65 ($120 value, cost subsidy by Columbia Basin Trust).

• October 29 – Home Based Micro-green Production Workshop: $65 ($120 value, cost subsidy by Columbia Basin Trust).
