Climate Victory Gardens

March 7, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Robert will be presenting a 90 minute workshop on Climate Victory Gardens, as part of Seedy Saturday, sponsored by the St Margarets Bay Garden Club and Transition Bay St Margarets.

Victory Gardens harken back to World War I and World War II, as a way to support the war effort through home gardening. This presentation and workshop will discuss a modern day version – Climate Victory Gardens.

We will look at the fragility of today’s big-business, long-distance, just-in-time modern food supply system and how it affects our region. We will discuss the exposure we may have in the future from food shortages and higher prices, as we enter an era of increased global food insecurity. Solutions will be discussed, including the incredible capacity to grow significant amounts of our food supply on little land and with only a modest labour input. Discussion will include how to begin or expand your ‘micro-farm’, what to grow that’s easiest and most nutritious, and ways to increase your larder and food stores.

The event is free and open to the public.
