Grow Your Own Food Project

$0.00


Fellow Okanagan Gardeners,

We’ve had a lot of people reach out to us who are at home during this difficult time, asking to purchase soil for their gardens. Because of this, we’ve decided to offer a free delivery service within the Okanagan Valley for a limited time on Grow Your Own Food Project Kits. We’ll drop off soil at your home on your doorstep so that you do not need to leave your home for supplies.

We found a great YouTube link that shows you how to build a raised 42″ x 42″ garden bed out of a pallet, with no supplies needed and only a few basic tools (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ya7r420KQZs). It makes a great family project while you are social distancing at home. Being sustainable has never been so important and you can start growing your own food this season.

Garden Soil

The soil has just a small amount of nutrients designed for propagation and initial growth and therefore fertilization in the form of either amendments and/or compost is recommended. Two bales are required for one pallet garden bed. 107L compressed bale expands to approx. 200L or 7 cu. ft. of soil.

Garden Fertilizer

For best results we recommend using our 2 part fertilizer. This will provide adequate fertilization and vigorous growth for the entire season. This fertilizer will feed your soil for up to 9 months. Simply mix one (1) bale with one (1) worm casting bag (2L) and one (1) nutrient bag (1Kg). Then add water only for the remainder of the season.

Wooden Pallet

We’d love to encourage you to use scrap wood that you have around the yard or something that you can repurpose, but if needed we can bring pallets too. Wooden pallets for your construction project. Max two pallets per household. Must order two bales to receive two pallets. No limits to soil quantity orders.
