Date: Saturday, October 21 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Host: Dave Hanson
Registration: Garden Club is always FREE and there is no need to pre-register... just grab a friend and come on down. Garden Clubs take place at Sage Garden Greenhouses, and participants meet at our main greenhouse starting around 10:15, so we can get going right at 10:30.
We do ask that participants bring a non-perishable food item for donation. All donations are picked up by the hardworking volunteers at St. Mary's Road United Church, which operates a busy food bank in St. Vital, serving an average of 700 people per month.
Details: With canning, pickling and freezing likely all wrapped up for most local gardeners, we thought it would be fun to share some interesting alternative ways plants can make us happy during the off season! Dave will demo five cool projects that you can do at home with a few herbs and ingredients/materials found around the kitchen. Get ready for lots of taste and aroma!
