Come out to our next work bee and help us wrestle with the newest plant invasion (aka weeds).   Or join the compost social, with muscle-building and aromatherapy as added benefits!  

Our community potlucks are always lots of fun - meet your neighbours, share a meal and gardening tips. There is always lots to learn, and it's fun for the whole family! No need to have volunteered before the potluck - just come join us!

Honeyfest Cancelled
We're sad to announce that this year's Honey Fest on September 6th is cancelled.

We went into the hives last week to get a sense of how much honey our little worker bees had stored and were shocked to find VERY little! We're keeping our fingers crossed for a better year next year.

You can read more about our hives this year in this blog post.
