Gardens are a beautiful refuge however if invasive species are planted or unmanaged they can quickly spread from your property to your neighbors’ and natural areas. Horticulture has been identified as one of the main human pathways that causes the spread and introduction of invasive species. To help you have an invasive free garden CKISS will be at Georama Growers this Saturday June 8th from 1 pm-4 pm with free PlantWise and GrowMeInstead resources.

If coming from Nelson take the first left off Highway 3A just out side of town onto Granite Road. Follow Granite Road past the Blewett Road turn off and watch for the blue Georama Road signs.
