Tsartlip Family Gardening Program

The Family Gardening Program is open to Tsartlip households – especially those with children. We assist families with the cost of soil, wood for raised beds, seeds, some transplants. Mentoring is provided through one-to-one home visits (with a community gardener). Education workshops are also provided to help gardeners hone their skills. Due to funding limitations, we will only take a limited number of households each season. Households must have: interest in learning, access to garden space and an outdoor water supply.
