Ladner Seedy Saturday Presents Don Bruchet
We have a wonderful line up of speakers for Seedy Saturday on January 28,2012. Our first speaker will be Don Bruchet. He will giving us an introduction to seeds and how to start them, nurture them and finally pot them up in to our gardens. For any beginner gardener this will be a wonderful talk. Trust me , once you have success with seeds there is no going back.
Don brings with him his great knowledge of vegetable gardening. He worked as retail manager at West Coast Seeds and has gardened extensively for many years. He gives garden lectures for various clubs. He is also a founding member of the Ladner Community Garden. We have learned so much from him. Don taught our allotment holders how to thin their vegetables, something we all just assume everyone knows. Never assume. He also helped the gardeners become successful this year despite our cool spring. Some still have lettuce in their gardens even in December!
At Seedy Saturday Don will be talking about how to get your soil ready for planting,give us a lesson on organic fertilizers and show us what we can plant first in the spring. He will go over the various ways to get our seeds started, what light and heat considerations are necessary and when to start.
So join us in welcoming Don on Saturday, January 28,2012. He will be speaking at 10:15am in the Fireside room at Ladner Baptist Church.
