Community Event

Happy Harvest

Pot bellied pigs to pumpkins and a bonfire Oct 19

Released by Valley Permaculture


he community is invited to the Edenvale Garden Harvest Party hosted by Edenvale Retreat Centre, HOME Society, and Valley Permaculture Guild.


The event will be held from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm. It will begin with an informal potluck (you don't need to bring food if you are unable) at 5:00 with the garden tour starting at 6:00 and the compost workshop at 6:30. As per usual, if you have any plants, seedlings, seeds, extra harvest etc. to share, please bring them along :)


Also note that the schedule is tentative and that you may come and go as you please.

Kid + friend + family friendly!!!

We’ll have some great kids’ activities. Come say hi to Edenvale's new pot-bellied pig! There will be pumpkin carving, fresh pressed hot apple cider, a seed swap table and a tour through the trails at the back of the property.


The community garden is open for touring in, and we have an awesome covered corral and the big barn loft to take cover in if the weather’s not so nice. Weather permitting, we’re hoping to have a bonfire as we did last year—it was big, and it was awesome! Please come dressed for the elements!

If there’s a gardening topic you’re dying to know more about, let us know and we’ll host a series of short and info-packed seminars—we’ve got a super knowledgeable crew! We’re also putting together pictures of the last year, an awesome year, so if you garden at Edenvale or Bradner Community Gardens, shoot me your pictures and we’ll put 'em all together!

If the weather is nice, the trails will be open to wander through the woods, and the bonfire will be lit at dusk! If it's rainy, we'll gather in the corral and the barn loft. the community garden will be open to wander through, with fall crops in.

We'll be there to answer questions about composting, compost tea, mulching, cover crops, winter gardens, raised beds, upcycled construction, manures, and everything else gardens!

Bring your seeds to share and swap, carve a pumpkin with your munchkins, and celebrate the fall with us.
