Our Tahsis Community Garden Society donated a great prize this year:
Congratulations to June, who had the winning bid. We hope you enjoy your herbs!
|There's always great snacks at the garden! Thanks to the Village of Tahsis for the leftover zucchini from the zucchini races. They were used as kabob holders for the fruit, then taken home by a visitor to fry up!|
|Alice, Ellen and Agatha, we were so glad to see our old friends again! Agatha was our very first gardener when the raised beds were built in 2010. Alice has done a lot of work at the community garden in Zeballos.|
|Gale Bates and one of her many interesting displays |
Our garden enjoyed a visit from Gayle Bates, Comox Strathcona Waste Management Contract Waste Reduction Educator! Gayle was fun and engaging, and spoke to us about recycling, waste reduction, composting and more! She shared tons of prizes and words of wisdom and encouragement.
|Karma had fun following a scavenger hunt devised by Marion Howell, here she had found "something orange".|
|Jude and Gayle|
|It was so hot, thankfully there was plenty of ice cold lemonade for everyone. Thanks to the Olsons for lending us your dispenser, and thanks to CMESS for lending us the cups so we could continue to be "trash free" in the garden.|
|Our special honorary slug destroyer Dudley came for a visit with his human, Juanita|
|Jan visits from Maple Ridge|
|Graham and Karma check out the plum tree that was planted when Karma was born.|
|Jan won the draw, a great market basket!|
|Gayle brought lots of crafting fun for everyone|
