Garden Q&A About Gardening for Wildlife and Garden Sharing

Part of West Shore Seedy Saturday
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Learning Commons, Belmont Secondary School
3041 Langford Lake Rd, Langford

Join ReImagine West Shore member and retired ecological restoration professional, Judy Nault at West Shore Seedy Saturday for an informal Garden Q&A, and conversations about such topics as:

Gardening for Wildlife
Done with the Kentucky bluegrass and ready to make a welcoming space for BC pollinators and birds? Plenty of people are interested in becoming better stewards of the environment, and that can include actions like creating beneficial habitat in your own yard, or ‘Naturescaping’. There’s lots you can do to invite more nature into your life! Come and talk about your options!

Garden Sharing
Finding that you’ve now got too much yard or garden to handle and curious about what it would take to share part of it with others? Garden Sharing is an innovative way to save money and grow more nutritious food locally while building stronger community connections. And the Young Agrarians of Canada already have a system in place to support it! Drop by to learn more!

Take a minute to get to know some of the common Beyond Blue Box recyclables you can ethically dispose of with Pacific Mobile the 2nd Saturday of each month at Belmont Secondary!

Repair Café ReImagine West Shore

11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Metchosin Arts & Cultural Centre
4495 Happy Valley Road, , Metchosin, BC

What do you do with a broken toaster? Or a bike wheel that’s out of alignment … and what about a sweater full of moth holes? Toss it? No way! Bring them to the Repair Café, where our fantastic volunteer repair team can assess and more than likely help you get your item repaired. And for those who want to give DIY a try, there will be tools and materials on hand for you to work on fixing some things yourself!

Got the tools and some time? If you’re a Handy Superhero like our mascot Reggie the Wrench Guy, we’d love to have you join our righteous repair quest. Repair Café ReImagine West Shore could use more handy volunteers and we’re looking for local residents with different skills who can serve as repair experts during our Repair Café meetings. Check out our Call to Handyfolk and let us know if you can lend us a hand at an upcoming Repair Café!  A community collaboration with the Metchosin Arts & Cultural Centre Association.
