Please join us Saturday, September 9 at 11am in the greenhouse for our AGM. We will follow the meeting with one of our last open houses of the season, where we will harvest anything that will be adversely affected by the overnight temperatures.

We will be voting for a new board, and reviewing our financial statements. We hope you will join us to help plan for an exciting year ahead.

The 2nd Annual Sprouting Workshop is being rescheduled from today to Thursday during our regularly scheduled Open House. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

So many things are happening at the greenhouse this week, it’s enough to make your head spin!

But if you spin on down to the greenhouse instead, you’ll find lots of fun, friends, and food. Here’s our breakdown for the week…

Trivia Night: Come out tonight for the last trivia night before our Fall League starts. Warm up your brain, and organize a team for the league. See you at 7:30 PM at the Storehouse Bar & Grill!

Thursday and Saturday Open Houses: There is always plenty to do during our open houses. Weeding, watering, planting, and harvesting. Come and see what we’ve got growing this week.

Sprouting Workshop: Join Josh to learn how to grow your own sprouts at home. If you’d like to take a sprouting kit home, be sure to bring a large jar, and a rubber band that will snugly fit around the mouth of the jar. We recommend a pickle jar, or a larger mason jar.

Hope everyone was able to enjoy the gorgeous long weekend weather – especially Monday! If you want to be reminded of the heat, you need only take a visit to the greenhouse.

We have a few things going on this week.

Come and check us out on Thursday at 5:15 PM and Saturday at 1 PM for our usual open houses. You never know what’s ready to harvest and take home. All are welcome!

This Saturday, we’ll also be holding our first of two annual summer workshops: Vermicomposting! From 2 to 3 PM, join Josh in the greenhouse to learn about how worms create rich soil from food waste.

Are you interested in vermicomposting at home? Be sure to bring two Rubbermaid-style containers of the same size, and we will supply everything else that you need. The size of the container should depend on how much space you have at home to create a compost bin, but generally a smaller size able to fit on a countertop will be suitable.

Stay tuned for next week…we’ll be hosting another Trivia Night and workshop!

It seems we got a little ahead of ourselves this spring. We held our AGM a bit too early in order to be considered official according to our bylaws. To rectify that, we need to hold a second meeting to report on our finances from last fiscal, and elect a new Board of Directors. 

Please consider joining us on Saturday, September 9 at 11 am in the Greenhouse. This meeting will be followed immediately with a Board Meeting to select the Executive so that we may continue the good work we’ve been doing this summer. Hope to see you there! 

Don’t forget…our regularly scheduled open house will be starting at 5:15 PM today!

This will be followed up with another open house on Saturday from 1 PM to 4 PM.

We’d also like to give a shout out to a community effort to clean up the area of town from the dump to the causeway. This cleanup will be happening Sunday at 1 PM, with sponsorship by Baffin Building Supplies, Tim Hortons, and the GN Department of Environment. All are welcome to come out and pitch in. Gloves, dust masks, and garbage bags will be supplied. Be sure to wear proper footwear.
