As part of activities for Nutrition Month, the Department of Health is inviting the public to a free, five-session gardening workshop every Thursday evening in March.
Participants will learn to grow fresh, nutritious food, which will help cut grocery bills.
Mellonie Furbert, Public Health Nutritionist said, “We know that people know the importance of fresh food and we also know that it can cost quite a bit. This is one way to save on your grocery bill.”
Minister of Health and Seniors, Jeanne Atherden added, “You can learn to grow fresh food, put nutrient-rich fresh produce on your family’s dinner table, and save money at the same time.
“Maintaining a garden is an outdoor activity that the whole family can get involved in. Even a relatively small garden space can work”.
