"Know it and Grow it" Garden Block Party

Saturday, May 15, 2010 - 12:00 - 20:00

The Alternatives Rooftop Garden Project, Greening Duluth and the Université de la Terre present Know it and Grow it! – a block party promoting the greening of Montreal.

Join us for the inauguration of gardening season – an afternoon of music, food and fun with family and friends!

There will be three workshops throughout the day – at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm. The workshops will teach participants how to make their own self-watering gardening containers out of recycled materials. Green thumbs not necessary! These gardening containers are ideal for growing vegetables out of soil, including on balconies, terraces, and pavement.

The event will be a perfect occasion to experiment with techniques and to deepen your knowledge of urban gardening.

Where: The House of Friendship; 120 Duluth Street East, at the corner of Coloniale
When: Saturday, May 15th, 2010 from 12pm to 8pm. Workshops at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm. (If it’s raining on Saturday, the event will be held Sunday, May 16th.)
Price: Suggested donation of $10 to $20 per workshop.
