An Overview of Earthwise Garden

Patricia Fleming

Doors open at 7:00 pm
Speaker begins at 7:30 pm

This presentation will provide an introduction to Earthwise Society, the work we do and our future plans. Starting briefly with our history in Delta, we will look at the creation of the Earthwise Garden, the development of our community programs, and an overview of exciting plans for our Agassiz property. Underlying all of this is the idea that each of us can make a difference and all of our gardens contribute to the ecological fabric of our community.

Patricia Fleming, Executive Director of Earthwise Society, has over 25 years experience designing demonstration gardens and developing programs for community engagement.   Patricia specializes in the creation of ecological gardens that work with natural systems, enhance biodiversity, and incorporate indigenous plants. Through her involvement with Earthwise Society, Patricia has developed a number of public ecological demonstration gardens including the Earthwise Garden in Tsawwassen, as well as organic teaching farms in Delta and Agassiz.  As Executive Director of Earthwise Society, Patricia helped to establish Delta Food Coalition, a network of community organizations collaborating on addressing food local food security.  Her work in community engagement includes educational program development and the delivery of therapeutic horticulture, horticultural training and leadership programs.


Giving Back to the Community

SDGC's purpose is to promote the love of gardening, to protection and conservation of native trees, plants, and wildlife, and to work for the beautification of South Delta.

We actively maintain 3 public gardens to showcase our efforts.  Members volunteer their time and plants, twice weekly.  It's a friendly way to meet other members.  We share our knowledge and skills while maintaining these gardens.

Each garden has a lead gardener to coordinate efforts.  Join us; have fun digging in the dirt and learn as you go.
