What's For Sale?

Chris still has a few slots open for those who want to sign up to buy vegetables from now, through fall and winter.

Call him at 221-0430 or email

The two regular pick-up days are:
Thursdays from 4 – 6 pm
Saturdays from 10 am – 12 pm

If you cannot come on one of those two days, Chris can make other arrangements with you. He can schedule a pick-up on another day, or orient you to the garden so you can come and harvest your own food, and note what you picked on a ledger pad he will keep in the shed. You can pay in advance and buy down your credit, or note what you take and he will invoice you at the end of the month.

Here is is current list of fantastic organic/biodynamic veggies: 

Lettuce Mix
Diakon radish
Spinach - is going crazy!
Snow Peas
Sugar snap Peas
Carrots - (let me know if you want some, I have them at my home garden)
Kale (three different varieties)
Swiss Chard
Bok Choy
Patty Pan Squash
Cutting Celery
Cauliflowers, Broccoli & Cabbages in the next week or so.

Gardening Class: Demystifying Biodynamic Gardening

Sunday, September 16
From 12 – 2pm

Market Garden at the Anderson Farm, the corner of Fairgrounds Road and Al Anderson Avenue (next to the Langley Community Garden P-patch)

Most gardening and farming practices use material inputs (npk) when trying to improve plant health. Biodynamic farming and gardening takes into consideration the interconnectedness of all life in and around the farm and garden, with the understanding that we are looking for living nutrients when we want to grow nutritional food for people.

Chris Korrow will explore these relationships and how they make a difference in plant health and soil fertility. Topics such as companion planting, plant spacing, micronutrients, planting though the seasons, biodynamic compost, how to deal with early bolting, and the connection between water, soil and temperature will also be discussed.

$15 includes biodynamic preparations that you can take home and use in your own garden!

For more information email or call 221-0430.

Preregistration requested, there is room for a limited number of participants.

Chris is developing a membership garden for those who want to buy produce from now through winter (he will focus on fall and winter production). More info will be available, or you can sign up at the event. Vegetables will be available for sale at the class.
