Victoria Day weekend is traditionally the busiest week of spring for gardeners who are starting to plant seedlings, sowing seeds and looking forward to the beautiful abundance that can follow. If you’re putting your green thumb to the test this season, we would love to hear back from you about what you’ve got growing!

You might be wondering, once you’ve planted your hopes and dream for a bountiful harvest in balcony pots or backyard gardens, what comes next ? Like a toddler who knows what they want to eat but has a language of their own, your sprouting fruits and veggies will be trying to talk to you too. The secret to avoiding tears and disappointment (on both fronts) is to learn to speak their language. Fresh City has developed the Mastering the Art of Composting & Soil Nutrition workshop to help you help them (the plants that is…but the toddlers might dig the veggies).

Getting the drift of what your plants are telling you and understanding your soil health will earn you the keys to your organic veggie kingdom. Your plants are depending on you to look out for them, and along with sunshine and water, nutritious soil is their ticket to the good life.

We want to make it easier than ever for you to keep your plants and gardening skills growing so we’ve put together a special promotion to celebrate this special weekend. Register for Mastering the Art of Composting & Soil Nutrition today for just $49 (regularly $80).

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll cover pro techniques for building life-giving soil that supports healthy plant growth without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

So if you haven't already registered, be sure to sign up for any available session on the spring/summer calendar with promo code MAYTWOFOUR for just $49 before May 31st.

After all, it’s never too late to learn a second language.
