Organic Kitchen Gardening Program

Lake Trail Community School Garden

As we move into our 6th year in the garden, we are starting to feel our accomplishment in creating a garden that provides a space for learning for students and community;  demonstrations of sound organic practices that home gardeners can do to grow their own food; and production of significant amounts of food for school and community uses.

Reaching this point has taken much ingenuity and hard  work. Volunteers are needed to help in every way and we appreciate their contributions and fellowship.  If you are an experienced gardener who would like to share your knowledge to spread the messages of sustainable edible education, or a beginner who wants to learn while working with others, please contact coordinator Elaine Codling  at  or

We would be especially pleased to have a dedicated composter team to support the essential soil-building tasks and extend community education opportunities.

The focus of this year’s Kitchen Gardening series is planting for a continuous yield. Starting Jan 30 and ending June 26 the program will consist of twice monthly seasonally appropriate indoor classes and several hands-on outdoor classes. Whether you are a new gardener or just looking to improve your skills this class will help you create your best kitchen garden ever. Classes are taught by Elaine Codling.
Elaine is the LTNC’s garden co-ordinator, a permaculture design consultant and teacher, and long time organic veggie gardener and life long learner.

Classes are Monday evenings 6:30 – 8:00 pm in class at Lake Trail school.

Classes are $20 each or choose any 3 Classes for $50. Pre-registration online at:
