FREE - No Till Vegetable Gardening

Gardening General

2-hour online class. If you love to garden but hate weeding and watering, join us as we explore no till gardening with Kim Ross. Through the use of permanent seed beds and mulch, no till gardening protects the soil's structure and can reduce the amount of water needed on the garden, prevent weeds from growing and increase yields through an improvement in the quality of the soil. Kim will share how she made the switch and the differences she has found in just two years of no till gardening, Kim has been producing vegetables and fruits for many years for her family of 6. When she embraced the no till gardening method taught by the USask gardening team she has enjoyed higher yields with fewer plants, significantly less weeds and reduced watering on her 26,000 sq ft garden.

About your Instructor

Kim Ross is a fourth generation farm girl who spent her summers picking pea's in her mother's garden and traveling the prairie land around the farm with her Grandparents looking for the best saskatoons to pick. Producing food was a way of life and it's a tradition Kim continued with her own children!  From her 26,000 square foot no till garden that produces vegetables, fruit and fresh herbs, to producing vegetables all winter long, Kim is an avid grower that enjoys sharing with other gardeners.  Kim is a Master Gardener and is working on her Prairie Horticulture Certificate in both the Greenhouse Crop production and Vegetable and Fruit Production streams.
