Change Of Topic And Fertilizer Orders

You may have noticed a change in the topic for next weeks meeting. The supplies for water garden features have not come in yet, so we have changed to a more timely topic for February.
The same excellent speakers, Heather and Cathy from Mother Nature are still on board, so we can look forward to an enthusiastic presentation on growing microgreens.

Microgreens are tiny, delicate and incredibly flavourfulsalad greens. They are an easy and economical way to grow your very own vitamin packed fresh food all year round. They can be used as toppings for salads, sandwich ingredients and fancy toppings and garnishes
Unlike sprouts, that are germinated and grown in water, microgreens are started in soil, and harvested at the seedling size.  Because they are grown in soil and do not need to grow quickly (like sprouts), the possibilities are nearly endless. Everything from basil to carrots to sunflower microgreens can be grown, adding a new dimension to home-grown harvests.

Note: Bring your fertilizer orders and a cheque to the meeting on Feb 25. Orders will be taken in the kitchen.  The updated form was attached to the newsletter.
