Miracle of Soil! How Building Soil Will Change Your Soil and Everyone You Touch

Speaker: Dirk Becker 

Dirk Becker from Transfarmation Farm in Errington knows how to build soil. More than once his family has started their gardens from nothing.  They built up soil into a successful market garden. Dirk says "Growing 16,000 pounds of food on just one acre, no till, by hand, for a living proves the example. " Spending less than $20 per month on food fortifies the effectiveness and efficacy of our approach. (We don't 'grocery shop')."  Your ornamentals and edibles will thrive in "good soil".

NHS Spring 2017 Plant Sale

Our Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, May 6th was a great success.
Thank you all for supporting our sale. Proceeds will help a deserving student studying Horticulture at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo.

Our Sale at Nanaimo North Town Centre took place on May 6th this year. Though Spring was late and the Sale earlier than last year, the plants looked good and we sold more than last year. We still have bulbs to sell in the Fall.
Thank You to all who donated plant material for our Sale. Many Thanks also to the Ladies and the Gentlemen who assisted with plant transportation, set-up, pricing and sales as well as hauling books to the Sale. We sold a few books and will have more for sale at our June Meeting. The Sale would not have happened at all without the help and energy of many Volunteers. Bless All of You.
Thanks Again,
Denise Callingham

Watch for the details of our 2018 Spring Plant Sale next May.
