Urban Gardening: Get School’d Goes Green!

April 13, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Get School’d is going green! Turn your thumbs green this Spring with our special lineup of earth-friendly Get School’d Workshops in April. In honour of Grow Op, the Gladstone Hotel’s annual exhibition of urbanism landscape design and contemporary art from April 21-24, we’ll be offering eco-conscious workshops every week in April!

Urban Gardening Workshop | April 13 | 5:30PM FREE | $25

We want to show you that growing your own sustainable urban garden is not only possible, but can be exceptionally fun and rewarding! Living in the city can mean limited outdoor space and difficult growing conditions, but that’s no reason to ignore growing your very own herbs and vegetables. With a little help, any urban space can be turned into an edible garden. Urban Gardener will get you confident in going from seeds to plate in this 90 minute workshop. We’ll start with some growing basics, and provide you with seed starting kits, seed starting potting mix, and an array of heirloom organic seeds. We believe that everyone should have a sustainable garden – no matter what urban space they live in.

What will we cover?

  • What to grow and where to grow it
  • Gardening with soil
  • Picking the right heirloom seeds for your space
  • Utilizing Seed Starter Kit
  • Transplanting seedlings into your garden
  • When to pick your herbs and vegetables

Who will be teaching?

The Urban Gardening workshop will be taught by Dave Attard and Stephanie Philip, both are graduates of Humber College’s Horticulture Technician program. Stephanie is plant-obsessed and the manager of Urban Gardener, a small boutique filled with indoor plants and artisan treasures located at 1640 Dupont Street. Dave is the owner of Urban Gardener, and operates the landscaping division. He’s designed and built gardens of all shapes and sizes in every neighborhood of Toronto. Both Dave and Stephanie are nuts about sustainable gardening and will talk your ear off if you’ll let them!

This curated workshop series is designed to be fun, educational and accessible! Students will be immersed in a positive and creative environment, cultivate skills and be inspired. Join this event page to be the first to find out about our weekly workshop offerings.
