Thank You, Alison!!!

Wasn't Alison AMAZING last night!?!  WOW, what a wealth of knowledge she has to share!  She wanted me to remind you to drop by Halifax Seed any time!  She loves answering questions and helping solve garden dilemmas!

Thank you, Alison!!
We had a blast!

Meeting Wed. Oct. 26th

Welcome Alison!
This week, we will be welcoming Alison from Halifax Seed! Allison has agreed to share information on fall veggie gardening extracted from her longer workshop offered through Halifax Seed. She has so much information to share; it promises to be an interesting night!

If you have not yet had a chance to register, we will have registration forms on hand. The cost is $20 for the year or $30 for couples.

It stays local!
We will once again be collecting for the local food bank at each meeting, so please bring along a food item for the donation box - every bit helps!

We will also have an opportunity to share announcements so feel free to speak up and let us know about any interesting local news you would like to share.

Hope to see you there,
Val :)

Plant Profile

Gardening Calendar

Things to do in Autumn
Clean your gardening tools to help them last longer and be ready for next year. 
After the first frost, mulch any plants that are frost sensitive with leaves, compost or straw. This helps them withstand the upcoming freeze/thaw cycles that can stress roots. 
Leave seedheads on perennial plants as food for birds and mammals.

Ask the Expert

Q : How do I help migrating wildlife?
A : Provide natural habitat so they have space to rest and feed. This helps them prepare for and endure their long journey. It also gives them what they need to survive when they return. Consider trees, shrubs and late-blooming regionally native plants as well as early spring bloomers.
