Back by Popular Demand!

Saturday 30 August 2008 Sunday 7 September 2008 Saturday 13 September 2008 Sunday 21 September, 2008

all run from 2 - 5pm

Each date is a separate workshop covering similar material:

ColdFrames and Season Extension Techniques: building both simple wire frames and wooden ColdFrames, including a Garden Tour and winter seed planting.

Riverdale Meadow Community Garden, 1 Danforth Avenue, at Broadview, on the south meadow, back of the school.

Building wooden frames involves demonstrations using power tools. Bring your own cordless drill, if you have one, and work gloves. All materials will be supplied; and the Raised Beds and ColdFrames built will be used in Riverdale Meadow Community Garden. These workshops will teach you how to build your own frames using recycled materials. You will learn how create shelters to grow foods outdoors through the winter, using only the power of the sun.

Wear appropriately safe footwear; and dress for the weather, bringing sunscreen and/or insect repellents, as appropriate. As well, bring your own drinks and snacks - the garden is in a relatively remote location, some distance from physical amenities.

These workshops will go ahead rain or shine (unless there is an electrical storm over the meadow.)

Cost: $20- per participant, with a maximum of 5 individuals at each workshop.

Pre-Registration is required: Contact coldframes (at) gmail (dot) com or 416 / 469-9507 x 2.
