Hello gardeners! We are mid-way through February and from the sounds of the people who visited Seedy Saturday in Pickering yesterday, you are ready to get your hands in the dirt and get growing!
We will have more information for you regarding the new Bowmanville Community Garden as it becomes available. Please visit our Facebook page to see some photographs of the progress of the garden from last season.
Vince has some interesting speakers and other events in the works for this gardening season, and we can’t wait to share the details with you.
Until then, enjoy shopping through those seed catalogs and dreaming of spring…

Durham Organic Gardeners will be hosting our annual plant auction next week on the evening of Wednesday, May 16th at the Durham District School Board Building (400 Taunton Road East, Whitby) in the cafeteria.
While you’re out and about in your garden this week, divide just one plant to pot up and bring along for the auction. We also welcome all other gardening accessories, tools and things of that nature. Help will be available to carry your contributions to the location of the auction within the building.
If you’re unable to attend the auction this year but you’d still like to donate, please contact Vince Powers to arrange for pickup.
Setup will begin around 6:00 pm. Come early to grab a number, a good seat and be ready to start at 7:30 pm sharp!
All members of the public are welcome, so please bring a friend, neighbour or family member with you.
It is your donations through the purchase of auction plants that serves as our major fundraising event each year, so thank you!
