Pat Potvin’s garden is in southwest Slave Lake. The only grass is a small strip mandated by the town in the front yard and a section outside the fence by a walkway that goes behind the house. All other available space has fruit-bearing trees and bushes, sunflowers (for the birds), vegetables and a few flowers. These are divided with brick pathways and retaining walls.
Two of his gardening mottos are “grow food not lawns” and “farm your yard,” he says.
