The Sammamish Valley Alliance (SVA) is planting the seeds of spring, not only with the planning of their annual seasonal Celebration events, but also with the announcement of a new part-time executive director to help grow the non-profit organization.
The “farm to table” movement has brought new life to edible gardening. Knowing how (organically), and when and where (10 minutes ago from your backyard) your food was gathered, are compelling reasons to “grow your own.” And with the new varieties of edibles, created with backyard and container gardening in mind, even a small space can yield an abundant harvest that will save you money at the grocery store.
Saturday, May 9 Chateau Ste. Michelle 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Garden Club members have planted and nurtured over 15,000 plants to near perfection. Now it’s your turn: choose from choice annuals, perennials by the gallon, salad bowls and voluptuous hanging baskets.
This year we are featuring over 100 perennials from our members’ gardens, and our legendary tomatoes — 800 this year.
Come early to get your favorites! Prices are reasonable, and free advice is available. (This is also a great way to complete your Mother’s Day shopping list!) For further information and directions to Chateau Ste. Michelle, consult our website at www.woodinvillegardenclub.org.
We’ve all heard of “garden-to-table,” but Molbak’s would like to introduce you to a new spring trend for 2015: garden-to-closet. We’re not suggesting that you weave a dress out of palm fronds. Instead, we’re inviting you to let your garden help you shape your style this spring. So take some tips from Mother Nature. As it turns out, she’s quite the fashionista.
