Father's Day plant sale and Grow it Yourself gardening workshop for youth
The Earthwise Garden is in full bloom, so now is the perfect time to come for a tour and learn how Earthwise celebrates the value of gardens in our lives every day. In addition to providing a natural gathering place that brings the community together, the Earthwise Garden models sustainable gardening practices and demonstrates that it is possible to have a healthy, beautiful landscape without the use of pesticides.
Earthwise will be holding a special Father's Day plant sale on Saturday, June 16 from 10am – 2pm. Choose from a beautiful selection of pesticide-free plants that will be sure to attract pollinators- ideal for the Dad in your life, or to enhance your own garden!
Also on June 16, Earthwise will be hosting a hands-on "Grow It Yourself" gardening workshop for youth aged 12 – 16, from 11 am to noon. Participants will learn the basics of growing food and get some hands-on practice by making a container herb or lettuce garden to take home – a perfect gift for Dad! Youth with an interest in gardening are encouraged to come out and give it a try in the peaceful setting of the Earthwise Garden. Pre-registration is advised.
