Bancroft Farm..Garden in a BOX???
So how's this for ingenuity and garden spirit? Bancroft Farm, New Brunswick, Canada, is sharing a new concept for container gardening. Graeme Bancroft constructed small greenhouse boxes, germinated his seeds in soil blocks and placed them all together in the boxes as herb selection or garden veg selections! The only thing I have to do, is take care of the babies till they are big and strong and then, plant them out in the garden. I love it! Easy peesey as they say..)))
Saltscapes was great! Being a gardener, I would have liked more garden content. Jodi was there, and gave a great presentation. There were a few garden booths, and my fav garden fire pit booth, but I must admit, Graeme gave me that spark of green inspiration and hope,... a young man knowing the value of good honest home grown food, and a commitment to making his young farm prosper.
