Vegetables take stage

Annual Edible Garden tour this weekend

A few of Rossland’s vegetable gardens will take centre stage these this weekend, with the second Edible Garden Tour taking place Saturday, July 30.

This year’s tour will see three thriving vegetable gardens featured, a continuation of last year’s successful event.

“Seeing is believing … To actually go to people’s backyard gardens and see exactly how they do this makes all the difference to having success in your own garden,” said Rachael Roussin, an organizer with Rossland Real Food.

The point of the edible garden tour is to visit each garden more than once throughout the year so people can see the progression over the season, she continued. The next tour will go in September.

Gardens this year vary, showcasing the cross-section of diverse growing environments in the area. This is especially helpful when looking at what might work best at your own home, Roussin said.

For example, one garden is located in downtown Rossland on a small plot of land but provides the gardener with enough food to last her until January.

Those interested should meet at the community garden at 9 a.m. on July 30, there is a $5 cost for the tour. For more information, contact Hanne Smith at 250-362-7767.
