I came across On Borrowed Ground when I was perusing through Edmonton events on The Local Good's website and I thought Anita's Community Supported Agriculture project was such a great idea. Although I grew up with a huge garden in our backyard, I haven't exactly inherited a green thumb. I mostly rely on local farmers' markets and the organic section for my vegetables but would love to learn some of the basics to eventually grow a full garden in my backyard.
On Borrowed Ground offers:
working memberships - where you contribute a number of hours each week doing things like soil building, planting, weeding, watering, mulching, staking, harvesting, and bug control. You get to experience first hand what goes into food production
