THANK YOU for being such a fantastic and inspiring community to be a part of and allowing us to get all nerdy about soil, worms, and plants. As we've shifted our education programs online we had so much support and demand. Here are 5 additional online workshops we've added to our adult education program.

Thank you EVERYONE for supporting our first ever annual spring plant sale shaped by a global pandemic.  It was A LOT of work.  A lot.
🌱Thank you first and foremost to the hundreds of amazing, generous folk who stood in line 6’ apart for hours in the sun.  You were warm-hearted, thoughtful and very patient and we SO appreciate you.
🌱 THANK YOU to our volunteers - without whom this endeavour would have not happened. You were so great, this was not an easy undertaking and you rose to the challenge beautifully.
🌱Thank you to all of our growers, you are the cream of the crop so to speak
🌱And thank you so much to our staff of FOUR (and only three in the lead up to the event because this guy is technically on LOA to pursue a dream).
🌱Thank you Cara.  Our new ED Cara has taken on the job during the MOST intense time imaginable and worked tirelessly to ensure that we could all participate in local food security and a cherished event in the safest way possible.
🌱Thank you Kayla- without you there’d be no plant sale, no plants and no teaching gardens.  Thank you for tirelessly coordinating our vendors and for the multiple kinds of acrobatics you did to make this thing happen.
🌱Chris - you’ve been doing ALL THE THINGS!  Event promo? Check.  Fielding literally hundreds of emails?  On it.  Wrangling, coordinating and developing safety protocols for our volunteers?  All over it. 
Maybe I got too much sun this week, but you’re all 200% magic and it’s a straight up honor to fumble through this messy existence alongside you.
😅 phew.  Time for something with ice in it, some aloe, and a lie down..
