Ladner Seedy Saturday Sneak Peek

I cant believe its only two more weeks until Ladner Seedy Saturday! As I sit here finalizing our program I thought I would share a bit about what you can expect at this event.
We have some wonderful vendors coming. One of our local vendors is Robyn Leake of Wild Ginger Designs. I have known Robyn for many years and she is a wonderful garden designer. Robyn used to work at Sanderson's Nursery before it closed and also at David Hunter garden center. She has lectured all over and given hands on instruction on creating your own container plantings and arrangements. You can usually find Robyn at the Ladner Village Market during the summer. She will be selling her beautiful planters as well some funky rustic bird stakes for the garden.


We also have Derry coming from Derry's Orchard and Nursery. Derry sells apple trees, blueberry bushes and lingon berries. I cant wait to see what she will be bringing to our Seedy Saturday. I have bought all my blueberry and raspberry plants from Derry. Derry is a master gardener and really knows her fruit. She even hands out growing information on the plants when you buy them. She wants you to be successful  growing her products. Tell you a little secret, Derry started the VanDusen master gardener program in 1986, but don't tell her I told you.
We also have the Corporation of Delta coming with an interactive display for children to participate in. This display will teach children about the environment and how our lives impact it by what we do each day. So bring the family. This is a family friendly event.
 Mark the date, January 28, 2012 at Ladner Baptist Church from 10am-2pm. Hope to see you there. There is lots of parking and the venue is wheelchair accessible.
