So I've been thinking about how cool (no pun intended) it would be to learn how to garden north of sixty and found this site for Yellowknife Community Garden. You apply for a plot of ground, attend workshops, learn about organic and sustainable gardening, donate some of what you grow to the community food banks, and make friends in the process. I noticed that there was a post on June 5th announcing that they now have the water turned on to the gardens... June 5th! Ah, but 23 hours of sunlight a day does wonders... :0) I applied for membership even though I will arrive too late for this year's growing season to have my own plot; I'm sure they won't turn down an extra pair of hands! I hope to get a plot assigned for the 2010 growing season.
Check out their site using the address below the YKCG logo.
