Welcome Summer 2019

A message from TCGS President, Kim A:

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for coming to our annual Solstice Potluck tonight. The food was amazing and such a variety what a spread! Was nice to see everyone enjoying themselves and showing off the garden to our visitors from Germany. The garden is looking fantastic with all the beds well under way now. Even the black flies were on their best behaviour tonight!

A special thank you to the boss mother nature for keeping a tight leash on the rain!

Cheers everyone! - Kim

First things first - our old rickety picnic table had a loose board with a screw sticking out, so we asked Terry to deal with it, thinking he'd just take the hammer and remove the offending board.  But nooooo, off he went and returned with a plank, drill and screws. 

That all safely taken care of, we moved on to Kim's welcoming address.

Rita was not feeling well and we truly missed her and her reading of the traditional Solstice Garden Blessing.  It is with appreciation that Juanita stepped up and said a few words of gratitude for the beautiful space we have here in Tahsis and even thanked Mother Nature for the needed rain.  Thank you Juanita. 

Deb and Janet were there and Janet bought 'pails of kale' as a giveaway.  er, thanks Janet! 😉 

Adding an international flair to our party, Thomas and Corrine from Germany joined us. 

The garden has never really looked better, almost every plot is lush, well-tended and growing.  Cheryl's plots are outstanding, as was her clam chowder, made with local clams. Terry's home made bread complimented it perfectly. Thank you Cheryl and Terry! 

Maureen and Merv took charge of our tents, they had recently cleaned and dried them to be ready for the upcoming Canada Day celebrations.  With the uncertain weather, the tents had to be loaded up and brought back to the garden.  Thank you Maureen and Merv - a lot of extra work and your many contributions are always appreciated.  

All in all a really nice gathering and sincere thanks to everyone who made it a success.  Next up...it's our 8th Annual Slugfest!  This is the Tahsis Community Garden's Tahsis Days Event, and is scheduled for Sunday, July 21st at 3 pm.
