GREEN GARDENING AT GREEN VENTURE
Green Venture has diverse resources and projects related to gardening:
Natural Lawn and Garden Resources
Both the City of Hamilton’s Pesticide Bylaw and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) Cosmetic Pesticide Ban help to define how pesticides can be used in our lawn and garden care. Our Natural Lawn and Garden care resources include fact sheets and information to help you comply with these rules while keeping your family, community, and the environment around you safer and healthier as you take care of your outdoor spaces.
Hamilton Community Garden Network
The HCGN is coordinated by Green Venture and Neighbour to Neighbour Centre to support the maintenance, growth, and development of community garden sites in Hamilton.
EcoHouse Community Garden
The Ecohouse Community Garden gives gardeners hands-on experience planning, maintaining, and harvesting an organic vegetable and herb garden. Starting in 2013, 50 square foot plots are available for rental.
Options For Agricultural Storage
Most farmers in Alberta at some point have a need for greater storage space. Storage needs develop gradually, and increase with the size of production. Extra storage areas may be needed for farm supplies, farm animals, or the large equipment that is used by the average farmer. Clearly, a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work for today’s agricultural industry.
Fortunately, there are lots of options for the farm storage buildings Alberta has to offer. Consider the following factors when you are looking at updating your storage units.
