We're excited to welcome Susan Stewart to the FarmCity team!
With more than thirty years' experience gardening in Vancouver (and before that in the Interior), Sue's available for one-on-one vegetable garden consultations. Whether you're just about to plant your first-ever lettuce seeds, or are in your tenth year of heirloom tomato heaven, she has a deep hands-on knowledge of Lower Mainland gardening to offer. We're convinced that you couldn't find a better source of advice, encouragement and general wisdom!
For the summer of 2013, we're also working to put together some tours of Susan's garden - the FarmCity "test" garden, often featured in the photos here on our blog. Everything from crop rotation, planting times and watering systems - to growing frames, composting and chicken-keeping - there's plenty to see!
And if we're lucky, we'll also convince Sue to give some preserving workshops at the end of the season: dilly beans, salsa, sauerkraut, tomatoes, apple sauce - and more.
