Thank you Cinnabar Valley Farms!


This year, Cinnabar Valley Farms gave Nanaimo Community Gardens Society a large donation of starter mix, soil, fish compost and composted steer manure. This will be blended into a mix used to start seedlings at the Beban Learning Gardens. Volunteers were on hand to help unload and move bags of soil and giant totes of material. These will be used throughout the season, mixed up in a precise ratio to provide the best nutrition for young seedlings until they are ready to be planted out into your garden.


When the soil blend is mixed, it is used for transplanting tiny seedlings from flats to individual 4 inch pots.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

This photo shows the  bags of soil under the table and a volunteer seeding into a flat with individual 4″ pots  in the background. See our post about plant sales to see what the seedlings look like close up.

Thank you, Cinnabar Valley Farms!
