GwB at Market Day and Garden Club


Market Day
This Saturday, July 21 Gardens without Borders will be at downtown Courtenay's Market Day.  I will have Junior Master Gardener activities for kids, and heck, even for their adults to do.

There are still spots open for August Junior Master Gardener day camps!

Garden Club at Gardens without Borders (at Innisfree Farm)
Every Friday, from 10 until noonish, Gardens without Borders is hosting a FREE Garden Club for youth and adults with developmental challenges.  I have big plans for us to create entries to submit to the CVEX Fall Fair! Some things I thought would be fun to submit:

  • Dried herb sprig/collection
  • Scarecrow
  • Flower arrangement
  • Flowers planted in an unusual container (the CVEX Fall Fair theme this year is "Boots, Bandanas and Barns" and I have a perfect pair of old gumboots we can plant in!)
  • Photography: garden/farm scene
  • Recycled garden art sculpture
  • Decorated pumpkin
This Friday, July 20, I thought we could start picking herbs to hang so they will be dry when it comes to submission time.
