      Growing Edibles on Tables, Rooftops and Walls

      With GMOs and all the problems caused by agriculture industrialization, edible landscaping and urban agriculture are more popular than ever. People feel a deep need to return to the essence of food. You also dream of growing your own fruits, vegetables and herbs. But without a plot, how to do so? You’ll be surprised to know that most vegetables, herbs and fruit shrubs can be grown in containers. Albert Mondor will offer you simple and ingenious solutions to grow a wide variety of edible plants in the most extreme places: on balconies, terraces, roofs or even walls! Passionate about environmental horticulture, urban agriculture and garden design, Mondor has practiced his craft for over 30 years. In additional to teaching courses and lecturing at conferences across Canada, his weekly gardening column has appeared in the Journal de Montreal and the Journal de Quebec since 1999. His eleventh horticultural book, Les plates-bandes gourmandes, was published in March of this year. He is also a regular guest and contributor to radio and television programs, including hosting The Trendy Gardener spots on Meteo Media and the Internet. You can also read his blog Extreme Horticulture at albertmondor.com.  There will be a drawing for prizes, too! The program is free for Master Gardeners, Alumni, Interns, and Students. Suggested donation of $25 for the general public. Bring a bag lunch to enjoy with your fellow gardeners prior to the workshop.
