It’s that time of the year again, for Vanderhoof’s green thumbs to shine.
The Vanderhoof Community Garden, free for all to sign up and use, opened its greenhouse in April.
Calendar for 2016

May: Outside plots ready for planting

Managed by the Nechako Valley Food Network, the garden aims to empower the community to grow and eat locally.
It is accessible for people with varying physical abilities, such as wheelchairs and walkers, and securely fenced with a flush bathroom, water fountain, covered area, seating and shared tool shed.
The garden has divers options with a greenhouse, raised beds, and open ground plots.
Offering free workshops throughout the year, the community garden is an opportunity for learning, mentorship, and volunteerism.
