Delta, BC – Now local kids can become master gardeners too! Children ages seven to 12 are invited to sign up for Earthwise Society’s Junior Master Gardener Program on March 24th to 28th for a fun and unique spring break.

During this half-day program, campers will discover why worms are good in a garden, how to feed the bees and will even build a bug mansion. Experts will be on hand to show children how cool plants can be and their importance to everything and everyone. Each day, participants will take home something they’ve created or helped grow such as a mini compost, bee-friendly plant or seed bomb.

This exciting camp full of hands-on games and activities will take place at the Earthwise Society organic farm and garden at 6400 3rd Avenue in Boundary Bay. The camp runs from 9 am to 12 pm with a cost of $100 for the week. Please call Earthwise Society at 604-946-9828 for more information about the camp and to register.


Earthwise Society is devoted to promoting sustainability through education and community initiatives. Based in South Delta’s Boundary Bay, Earthwise Society operates the Earthwise Garden and Earthwise Farm.
