Greenhouse Prep Day

Thank you to all the gardeners and friends who came out to the garden today to do the greenhouse preparation for this season!

Terry, Kim, Janet, Catherine, Bill, Carol, Alex and Stephanie got a lot done and a special thanks to Alex for bringing a power washer to give the greenhouse and picnic table a good scrub.

This is going to be a great year!  We have at least 26 gardeners involved right now, including at least 6 new members.

Bokashi Composting Workshop

Bokashi Composting Workshop


Tahsis Community Garden Society
invites the community to a
BOKASHI COMPOSTING WORKSHOP

Lead by Terry Fassbender, Organic Master Gardener

Bokashi composting is a safe, quick, and convenient way to compost in your kitchen, garage, or apartment, using a specific group of microorganisms to anaerobically ferment all food waste (including meat and dairy).  Since the process takes place in a closed system insects and smell are controlled.  The process is very fast, with compost ususally read to be integrated into your soil or garden in two weeks.  

If you want to build your own composter bring two 5 gallon buckets and one tight-fitting lid.

Congratulations to the members of the Tahsis Community Garden Society, starting out a new growing season!  There are only one or two beds left available, (call me at 7805 if you want to join) and the garden is pleased to welcome back the gardeners, and a special welcome goes out to all the new members!

At the Spring Meeting, plans were made for all kinds of activity in or for the garden.  Plans were made to prep the greenhouse for another year, and members will also attend a general clean up party to tidy up the winter debris.  As everyone in Tahsis knows, there are always blackberry vines to fight off!

There is an upcoming workshop on Bokashi Composting!  Terry is an O. M. G. (Organic Master Gardener) and we are so happy to welcome his family to our town, and he is now a new director of the Tahsis Community Garden Society.  The other TCGS directors acclaimed this year are Stephanie, Silvie and Janet.  The president is Kim, the vice-president is Jessie, and the secretary/treasurer is me (Karli).

More info coming soon about the upcoming Bokashi Compost Workshop.

Our blog here has been sitting dormant for quite some time, but there are lots of great older photos if you want a trip down memory lane.  This summer watch for more updates and photos of our amazing garden!
