Greenspaces and the Environment

Teaching Gardens

While West Broadway’s community gardens generate well over 1000 lbs of produce each year, their value should also be measured as meeting places, play spaces, classrooms, and living galleries for Indigenous species. Each spring and summer WBCO hosts as many as twenty workshops, often in our Teaching Gardens. Working in partnership with local organizations, businesses, and schools, our workshops series is almost entirely free for participants and delves into a wide range of relevant subjects, such as: seed starting in apartments, composting, vermicomposting, Permaculture gardening, climate change, Indigenous plants and agricultural practices, tree care, garden tours, canning, etc.

Please check back here often for notice of events or contact WBCO’s Gardens Coordinator between April and September at [email protected]
