YCGC Hosts Day Camp youth from Yellowknife, Yellowknives Dene First Nation, SideDoor and the City of Yellowknife. About 100 youth from the area were toured through the YCGC Kam Lake Garden over a two day period. This was a combined from the GNWT Industry, Tourism and Investment, Environment and Natural Resources, Ecology North and the YCGC. Small groups of youth were provided with exercises to illustrate the value of local food production.
The July weeding and ice cream at the Berry Orchard was a great success. Stay tuned for another eating and weeding opportunity.
Soil testing and amendments.
