Gardening for food

The guest speaker at the next meeting of the Lakefield and District Horticultural Society will be Jillian Bishop speaking on Food Gardening and Community Gardens.

Jill has worked with the Peterborough Community Garden Network (PCGN) “Building Resilient & Vibrant Communities, One Garden at a Time” for four years.

An avid gardener throughout her whole life, Jill has always loved getting out into gardens and helping others to do the same.

She firmly believes that “Gardens are communities in themselves, and an integral part of larger communities.”

Jill is also the owner of an heirloom seed business (urbantomato) that works to preserve many varieties of unique vegetables and teaches others to do the same.

The meeting takes place Tuesday, March 11, 7:30 p.m. at the Lakefield Marshland Centre.
