October 14 – Winter Garden Construction Workshop

The beautiful garden you nurtured this year produced a multitude of fresh vegetables all summer. Keep it alive over the frostier months with a cloche greenhouse that you can learn to make in our Winter Garden Construction Workshop.

Become familiar with the Vancouver Tool Library’s inventory while observing the step-by-step instructions on how to recreate this project in your own backyard. Participants should be familiar with the use of power tools but, as always, safety procedures will be described in detail. After this workshop, you’ll be able to benefit from your hard work earlier this year for months longer than you previously thought. Instructor Kimi Hendess will also go over what types of vegetables grow best in the colder months and how to prepare them for the lower temperatures.
