|Meeting time and location:|
We meet at Cranberry Senior's Centre, 6792 Cranberry St., Powell River at 7:15pm on the 4th Tuesday of each month except July, August and December.
Our aim is to promote organic and sustainable garden practices and educate new gardeners and those new to our 7b to 9 climate zone. Powell River on the Upper Sunshine Coast is in a unique climate area. We deal with an abundance of rocks, roots and sandy soil but are compensated by more hours of sunshine and a mild winter climate. we are a GMO free zone. At our meetings we bring in speakers on a wide range of garden related subjects, have an on-site Master Gardener, a lending library of garden books and magazines, free refreshments and a friendly membership to make a new resident feel welcome. In addition to our monthly meeting, we go on tours of our member's gardens, hold a large community plant sale and have workshops and other events.
We hold a spring plant sale and participate in Seedy Saturday and the Fall Fair.
