UGM Workshop: Companion Planting

Come join Peter and his Vancouver Urban Gardening Meet-Up group to learn about companion planting and how to make the most of your urban veggie garden!

No experience necessary, everyone is welcome. 

Companion planting is the practice of planting two or more plants together for mutual benefit. Experience has taught us that planting some vegetables together leads to enhanced quality and growth.
