Ladner Community Garden-Being Thankful

We would like to thank all our volunteers at the community garden for all they have done this year. From building a fence and arbor to painting and helping with garden classes, so much has been accomplished. Its been a busy building year and we are going into 2014 with less to do. We will be focusing on planting some new gardens and getting our herb spiral built.

Thanks to those who attended our Christmas party. It was nice to have such great conversation. That's what community is all about.
As we go into the new year, we will be looking for a few new directors. If you have some time to spare, we meet a few times each year to organize potluck dinners and work parties. In order to keep our garden going we need five directors so if you can help out, we would be very happy to have you on board.

This past season was a very abundant one at the garden. We had peas and beans growing like crazy and at times it was hard to keep up with the harvest.

The grade three class had success growing radishes, kale, arugula and spinach in the fall and they will return to the garden in late February. Thanks to our master gardener, Donna, Lynn, Gail and Janice for all the help they have been. You cannot teach 40 children without volunteers.
We are pleased to announce that Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo 2014 has been scheduled for Saturday, February 15,2014. It will be held at Ladner Baptist Church from 10am-3pm. We have three wonderful speakers to get you excited about the new garden season.

Brian Minter From Minter Country Gardens will be speaking on 'Food Gardens', Julia Common will be sharing her talk about Hives For Humanity and Ian Tait from Feed the Bees will give us information on how to bring bees back into our gardens. With a lineup like this, you will want to stay the whole day. We have  many vendors already booked for the event selling seeds, services and garden treasures.
If you would like to volunteer on Seedy Saturday, give me a call or comment below. If you are a vendor and interested in coming to our event you can email at deltagardener at
Have a wonderful holiday season!
