The YM/YWCA is looking for volunteers for their organic teaching garden. Their goal is to share knowledge about local, organic, urban agricultural practices and volunteers will engage in hands on experiential education by becoming involved in the complete growing cycle from seed, to market, to preserving the harvest.
The site is ready with apple trees, raised garden beds, composters, herb beds, a large flourishing perennial garden and vegetable garden. The teaching garden volunteer will learn various garden tasks based upon seasonal requirements. The teaching garden volunteer will be based with support at the garden located at 2139 Sooke Road in Colwood. The garden is located on a main bus route.
