It felt like spring, and then it snowed… and then spring arrived again… and then this morning some more wet snow flakes. But it’s time. Time to open the nursery for our first spring sales for perennial edible plants.
With the arctic hitting all time warm records for February with temperatures ABOVE freezing and there is still no day light…is just nuts. Climate change is here and it’s happening faster than even the worst case scenarios. But what can we do? Planting food producing hardy trees is a great step… you can’t go wrong with this.
Farm schedule for sales of perennial edible plants:
When: Every Saturday this spring starting March 3rd from 10am-2pm.
Where: 3295 Compton Road, East Highlands, Victoria, BC
Details: Even if you are not buying plants you can still come out to have a look at chickens, ducks, gardens, earthen architecture, the Eco-Hut, or to just hang out and have a conversation with other people. If you don’t plan on buying plants, please park at the bottom of the hill and walk up. Please do not bring dogs as they are upsetting for our ducks and our dog Nina will go into show-off mode and start racing around. THANKS!
Parking is limited at top, so please park to make room for others beside you.
Discounts: For purchases over $500 there is a 10% discount. If you are planning a larger order you can also book a private appointment. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Plant list: We have lots of new plants and many varieties of apples, plums, pears, cherries, walnuts, hazelnuts, currants, berries, hostas, persimmons, mulberries, chestnuts, apricots, nitrogen fixers, tea, kiwis, bamboo, grapes, peaches, Sichuan peppers, and many bare root plants. All of our listed prices include GST. Here’s our list:
Other items: We have some eggs, squash, garlic (for eating or planting), and cover crops (yellow and green peas).
See you on Saturday.
