Urban Garden Workshop

Urban Garden Workshop

Even if you only got a windowsill, you can still grow some lovely grub! The newest addition to the ACAP Saint John team is the Sustainer Container - located in Chown Field. The Sustainer Container will be used to grow various herbs and vegetables to be distributed throughout the community, as well as an educational tool to promote home gardening and food security. 


Our first garden workshop of the season will be held on June 20th from 1pm-2pm and again between 6:30pm-7:30pm. Join us as we talk about the benefits of gardening, how to start your own patio garden, harvesting and preserving vegetables, and so much more!

Please contact us directly if you have any questions.
