This year Harvest Share is celebrating our 10th anniversary!  Everyone is invited to join us at the Harvest Share Pie Party on Saturday September 30th from 7pm-9pm at the Bosun Hall in New Denver.  We will be providing some pies made with local fruit by the talented Sarah Lord, and invite you to make a pie from your backyard fruit to share with the community.  Join us for pie and live music to celebrate the bounty and everyone that has participated with the project over the last 10 years.

On Saturday October 14th Harvest Share is hosting a full day composting workshop at the Knox Hall in New Denver, led by Mario Lanthier from CropHealth Advising and Research.  The workshop will teach how proper manipulation of organic matter will make plants healthier.  How do we do it?  Come find out!  We will discuss ideas and recipes you can implement immediately. Topics will include the preparation and testing of compost, the mistakes that lead to poor quality, and the steps to make high quality compost that suppress plant diseases.  This intensive 1-day seminar will be of interest to organic growers, landscapers and avid gardeners.  Participants will learn the differences between “good” compost and “bad” compost and how to use the finished product in different situations.  The afternoon session is hands-on to practice the concepts discussed in the morning. 20$-40$ sliding scale.  Call to register: 250-354-8120
