Planting McDonald Park Garden today

We had a great time planting the McDonald Park Public Produce Garden today. A huge thank you to  all our volunteers!

Thank you to the Thompson Shuswap Master Gardeners, Bill, Barb, Elaine & Marvin and to Kyle Kapsha, Urban Agriculture Coordinator, who demonstrated various gardening techniques and tips.
