Urban Agriculture Workshop

On April 2nd 2011, Squamish CAN and the Helping Hands Society hosted a hands-on urban agriculture workshop.

We learned to build raised garden boxes and cold-frame hoop-houses while assisting the Helping Hands, who will be using these structures to grow food for the shelter and to supplement the Helping Hands Food Distribution Program, where healthy fresh food is distributed to fixed income Squamish residents. Added bonus for all: We turned an empty lot into a productive garden!

A million thanks to Rona Squamish, who donated the materials to make this very healthy, educational project possible.
