Support Fort St John News

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Registration for the Fort. St. John Community Gardens will open up to residents in early April.

NEAT Executive Director Karen Mason-Bennett says there are plenty of beds available, and those who rented a bed last year will have the first right of refusal.

The organization will be using some of the community garden beds to finish their hugelkultur beds to grow produce for their NOURISH program.

Hugelkultur is a german gardening technique to create a new garden using logs, smaller branches, as well as sod, compost and other organic materials to create a raised bed without walls that looks similar to a small hill.
