If you are blessed with a bumper crop, and want to share the bounty with your neighbours please drop off your excess goodness here at our local Food Bank Donation Options in 100 Mile House.

Here’s a list of Local (and hard to find) Sources for Seeds, Seedlings, Berry Bushes, Trees in 100 Mile House.

'Irma the Worma', the Rebel Garden Zone mascot for Food Security_PC Monica HolyWe recommend you place your sign at the end of the driveway, in the garden itself or hanging off a fence, whatever works for you.  Remember our Rebel Garden Mascot ‘Irma the Worma’ tells others that you care about Food Security and Local Food Initiatives here at home so be loud and proud and spread that word to others.

    What a great site! I love the idea of an actual list. Reading this and thinking about gardening makes me think I want to move to the country again…sigh.

    Thank you Colleen. Keep an eye out for upcoming posts on vertical gardening and container pot gardening for those who have a small yard, or live in an apartment and have little more than a balcony or a roof terrace to work with. You might just be able to bring some of the ‘country’ to you!

    Sounds great! I love the idea of vertical gardening…
