Creating meaning and making an impact in the work that you do is central to your ideals. You value the environment enough, not only live in harmony with it, but to do something to protect it; you’ll resonate with the organic principles of health, ecology, fairness and care. As ACORN’s Fund Development Coordinator, these principles will guide your work, and living in Sackville, New Brunswick will allow you to embrace them. Read on to learn more about this opportunity!

This full-day workshop will help you create a year-round garden so you can raise and harvest food all year long, by combining raised beds with protective structures like cloches, cold frames, tunnels, row covers and greenhouses, and selecting the varieties you plant. By starting different crops in succession, building up your soil and protecting your plants, you can harvest food all through the year, even in the middle of winter.
Led by home gardener Dan Rubin of Perfectly Perennial Herbs and Seeds, this workshop will demonstrate raised bed construction and show you basic steps to create your own four-season garden. In the past six years, more than 350 people have participated in these sessions.
Learn about plant selection, seed starting, soil enrichment, intensive planting and how to build protective structures to extend your growing season. Workshop fee: $65, includes home-cooked lunch, seed starting, all handouts, hands-on activities, group discussions and local garden tours. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
