Our February meeting will be on a SUNDAY afternoon! In response to input from various members who don't enjoy driving in the evening in winter, we've decided to try a Sunday afternoon meeting at St. Luke's United Church on Sunday, February 19th at 2 pm. 5374 St. Margaret's Bay Rd. Upper Tantallon
Join us as we welcome Todd Boland via Zoom on the BIG SCREEN!
His talk will be on the advantage of using native plants in the garden landscape with an emphasis on those well-behaved natives which combine well with our more regular exotic plants.
We support the St. Margaret's Bay Food Bank at our meetings, and welcome your cash donations in envelopes provided by us. These are delivered to the Food Bank the morning after each meeting.
You'll want to GET GROWING!
Mark your calendar now for March 18th, 2023. We've booked the whole of St. Luke's United Church to bring a fantastic gardening event to Upper Tantallon. Seedy Saturday will run 11 am - 4 pm.
"Pay What You Can" all welcome!!
The Lower Hall will be FULL of great vendors - selling seeds, garden products and sharing information on gardening. There will be three garden-focused community organizations represented too.
Expect 15 - 20 tables to visit! Lots more info will be coming, and we'll soon update the new menu page here on the site, with all the details.
In the Sanctuary (capacity 280 people) we will offer three speakers with 1.25 hour presentations on great gardening topics.
In the Upper Hall (capacity 60 people) there will be several additional presentations throughout the day - starting at 11:15 and ending at 3:30.
This will give you a half-hour to go back to the vendors before the event ends at 4:00 pm.
In the Lower Hall there will also be light lunch fare offered, along with tea and coffee, muffins, etc. Plan to spend the day, or drop in. (You can pop in more than once!) We will have some door prizes and we'll announce those at the end of the day.
Watch this space and our Facebook page for more info as it is available.
Special thanks to Pam Lovelace, Councillor, HRM Disctict 13 and to Danielle Barkhouse, MLA Chester - St. Margaret's for their support. Other supporters will be listed soon.
