Fernie's EcoGarden is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The EcoGarden is turning 10!

It’s harvest time as the Eco garden celebrates a decade of digging on Saturday, October 12.

The EcoGarden is turning 10. To celebrate a Decade of Digging includes a farmers market on Saturday, October 12. “The outdoor garden celebration will be a farmers market like event with veggies, fruits, honey, pumpkins for sale. It is THE place to get your pumpkin for the Halloween,” said Dawn Deydey.

There will be a variety of activities for garden lovers of all ages, with events happening at the EcoGarden in Prentice Park from 11am to 3 pm.

During the Decade of Digging celebration, there will be a handpicked homegrown picnic potluck where people are invited to bring their picnic supplies and a locally grown dish to share. There will also be a harvest market with local honey, Fernie produce, as well as a trailer full of pumpkins, veggies and fruit coming from Creston.  There are also plans for live music, fire pits, hot apple cider and more.

As part of the 10 year celebration the EcoGarden is also hosting two work parties to replace the dozen plots that were built the year the garden was created.  Volunteers are needed to help remove the old wood, paint the new logs and help with construction.  There will be tasks for all skill levels.  Work parties will take place on Thursday, Oct 10, 4 to 8 pm and Saturday, October 19, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

The EcoGarden Advisory Committee invites the community to come out and help celebrate 10 years of volunteer commitment that has created an amazing green space for the community to enjoy.  To learn more about the Decade of Digging celebrations and volunteer opportunities, please visit www.ecogarden.ca or call 250-423-3482.
