New Gardening Club presents Learning Local Landscapes workshops
If you’ve been itching for a row to hoe, the new Gardening Club is an excellent opportunity to work on your green thumb.
Taking root on campus this month, the new club has organized a series of four Learning Local Landscapes workshops — being held in August, September and October — hosted by community experts and UBC Okanagan faculty members.
Open to all faculty and staff at no charge, these workshops are organized by Facilities Management and will provide gardening tools and everything that’s needed to participate. Learn how flora and fauna interact in our local landscape, get your hands dirty and take home some tips for use in your own garden.
