The sixth annual Castlegar Garden and Nature Fest is growing.

Castlegar Communities in Bloom will be coordinating this event with the assistance of the Castlegar Garden Club.  It’s all happening on Saturday, May 23 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Castlegar Community Complex.

All events are free. Vendors will be selling a large array of plants: herbs, rockery plants, berry bushes, shade plants, vegetable starts, annuals, trees and shrubs all at the right time of year for planting.

There will be garden furnishings, metal art, stepping stones, garden planters, stained glass art, composters, baked goods, food and music — something for everyone.

The City of Castlegar will have a large display of information on composting water conservation, and an added bonus — one free bag of compost will be given away to each visitor.  Several non-profit and educational groups will showcase their work and distribute information on a vast array of topics.

If you are a potential vendor or non-profit group, the deadline for registrations has been extended to May 10. For more information contact Darlene at 250-365-1653; email CastlegarGardenFest@shaw.ca  or visit castlegargardenfest.com

 

Mark this date on your calendars: this is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding and enjoyment of plants, nature, farming, and growing.
