Mother Nature may be tossing a dismal weekend at us weather wise but a trip out to New North Greenhouses on Airport Road for their “Hello Spring Event” is sure to drown away a bit of that cabin fever. The event runs from 10am to 4pm and there are a variety of Vendors, Displays, Food, Music and Activities planned for the entire family.
Free Children’s Activities
Sandra Hodge Clay & Educational Art Studio | 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sandra will help your children decorate a pot and plant a pansy to take home. She will also provide each child with a clay charm and plant pick!
Art Gallery of Algoma | 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Elena Lewis will be showing children and youth how to create their very own garden mosaic using sand, found objects, coloured glass and hand painted pebbles.
Suzanne Hanna from the Sault Horticultural Society will lead an interactive activity about Culinary and Medicinal Herbs. She will also answer any question you have about herbs.
Laura Wyper will be available to talk about SSM Fallen Fruit, a new program in which unused fruit is saved and distributed to volunteers and community agencies that can use it in their programming. It is collaboration between property owners who have fruit trees, shrubs, or plants, volunteers willing to pick the fruit, and organizations that would like to either have their participants be included in a harvest picking and/or would appreciate some of the fruit picked and delivered as a donation to their agency.
New North Greenhouses Tour | 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Come on a guided tour of behind the scenes at New North Greenhouses! You will be amazed to see the scope of the facility and all the effort it takes to grow the healthy plants that we sell. When you buy from New North, you support a local business and are planting locally grown flowers, vegetables and herbs!
