Blessings on us all, here we are at the vernal equinox!
If you had not yet been in gardening mode, perhaps this is the day you can shift gears and begin anew.
For help and encouragement especially for new gardeners, I will be co-hosting a new group, the Naugatuck Valley Avant-Gardeners, with regular meetings at the All American Valley General Store at 16 Bank Street in Seymour.
Of course, the entry to the store is on Columbus Street, just to make it interesting (c;
We plan to meet Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. at the General Store, and depending on the weather will work indoors or outside.
Each week will be an opportunity to share plans, ideas, questions and techniques. We can swap seeds, seedlings and stories, and enjoy the company of other plant-lovers.
On the last Saturday of each month we plan to have more intensive workshops for those who are interested. The topics will be determined by the Avant-Gardeners during the regular weekly sessions.
A per-visit cost of $5 for the regular weekly sessions per person will cover the use of the space, tea and occasional light snacks. The last Saturday intensive workshops will be $35.
No reservation is required for the regular weekly meetings, but they will help us plan for the last Saturday workshops.
And if you have a particular topic for a workshop, please send a note or call with your suggestion.
May your gardens flourish this year, and all the years to come.
