A pair of workshops by. the Grow Local Society will help gardeners get their hands dirty for the upcoming season.

If the occasional glimpse of the sun and slightly milder temperatures have you itching to get into the garden, the Grow Local Society has a couple of events that will help you get your hands dirty.

Sunday (May 1), David Catzel from FarmFolk CityFolk’s BC seed security program will be at the community garden next to the Port Moody police department at 3051 St. Johns St. to talk about how to save seeds.

He’ll present techniques to preserve seeds for future planting, as well as discuss why saving seeds is so important.

Gardeners who attend will have a chance to ask questions as well.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and tickets are available at Eventbrite for $10.

On May 15, experienced organic gardener Lynda Smith will present a workshop with tips to prevent insects and disease from devouring your garden.

She’ll have samples of homemade solutions that are as easy on the wallet as they’re tough on pests.

Gardeners attending the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to noon, are invited to submit their specific questions to Smith by email before Friday, May 13.

Tickets are also available on Eventbrite for $10.
