Winter Vegetables

January 16, 2010

December vegetable plots in the Hastings Street Folk Garden, Strathcona Community Garden, and a front garden bed located within a Green Streets neighbourhood. Dense and textured planting, deep applications of organic mulch, i.e. seaweed, leaves and straw, and transcending the need to be entirely ‘weed-free’ are common features within Vancouver community gardens.

Ideally vegetable gardens should be planted in a way inspired by nature – idiosyncratic, textured and infused with sound organic gardening practices. A vegetable garden should be more like a meadow of diverse growth rather than being neat and ordered.
