Garden club talking seed varieties for food gardens in Chilliwack

A rep from West Coast seeds is coming to town Wednesday

Chilliwack Garden Club has invited a rep from West Coast Seeds to town this week to help everyone plan their food gardens.

Alex Augustyniak, general manager of West Coast Seeds, will be talking about some of the characteristics of new seed varieties that are coming out and offering tips for creating a year-round garden.

Join Augustyniak and the Chilliwack Garden Club members, at 7 p.m. on March 14 in Singleton Hall, behind Cooke’s Presbyterian Church at 45825 Wellington Ave. The talk is the highlight of the March meeting of the garden club, which has been growing with local gardeners since 1946 in Chilliwack. New and experienced gardeners are welcome.

Then on March 24 it’s Brian Minter giving an ‘Intro to Veggie Gardening’ talk, 10 a.m. at Minter Country Garden on Young Road. The Master Gardener will be spending an hour discussing tried, true and new varieties of vegetables to try, tips for growing edibles in containers and address some of the common challenges home gardeners may face during the growing season. Call 604.792.6612 to register.
