Year End Potluck Social

Bring-A-Gift Get-A-Gift!!

This Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 7pm we will be celebrating the growing season with our year end potluck and a garden gift exchange while we discuss the plant sale and the plan for next season. 

Along with your favourite sharable treat, you are invited to (optionally!!!) bring a wrapped garden item for a light-hearted, garden-themed yankee gift exchange.  It can be a plant, seeds, books, tools, decor, whatever - but max $15 if it is not from your garden stash.  We'll draw names for an exchange.   

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Wed.Nov.28,2018 - Potluck Social and Baskets or Wreaths

Hello everyone!

Wednesday, November 28 at 7pm is our holiday social!!! As in years past, we will do potluck snacks and sweets.  Punch will be provided.

Our Christmas craft this year will be a hanging basket or a wreath.

Please bring with you the basket (with dirt) or a wreath of your choice, as well as snippers and any decorations you wish to include.  We will have some greenery on hand, but please bring some of your own if possible.  Berries are often in short supply – so if you can bring your own that would be appreciated as well.

Here are some inspiration pictures for you!

Hanging Christmas Pots...these are the BEST DIY Christmas Homemade Decorations & Craft Ideas!
