With fall in the air, many people are looking for new projects and new ways to use their skills and talents.
Earthwise Garden and Farm volunteers John and Pat Anderton started sharing their time with Earthwise in 2009.
Pat has lent her gardening skills to keeping the one-acre Earthwise Garden looking its best, while John has helped in building walkways, walls and other construction projects.
This fall, Earthwise Society is celebrating John’s newest project, dubbed John’s Rockery.
It’s a creative reuse project incorporating found material to build a rock garden to showcase plants that are native to well-draining rocky outcrops such as those found along the West Coast.
The Earthwise Garden and Farm has a team of more than 50 dedicated volunteers whose energy, knowledge and commitment help keep our community green. If you have a green thumb, or would like to acquire one, Earthwise invites you to come for a visit on Nov. 3 from 7-9 p.m.
Join other volunteers for dessert and coffee, find out about volunteering at Earthwise and stay for a viewing and discussion of the film Food, Inc.
The Earthwise Farm and Garden is located at 6400 3 Ave. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-946-9828. For more information, visit www.earthwisesociety.bc.ca
