Its less than a week until the Ladner Community Garden Society and the Ladner United Church opens the doors for Ladner Seedy Saturday and Garden Expo 2017. We are still getting requests from vendors and I am working on different layouts to fit everyone in. It looks like we have the Kelpman and Mike and Sandy's Berry farm coming again this year.
We have a wonderful lineup of speakers including Brian Minter, Gary Lewis, Shelley Levis and Mike Nugent. The presentations will be in the Ladner United Church's sanctuary and the vendors will be in the celebration hall. Entrance to the event is through the main doors at the front of the church.
Parking is always a struggle to find in our small town as its free. Yes, free parking, imagine that. So if you can walk to the event that's great or if you are driving try to use the public parking lots located at the corner of Elliot street and Chisholm street, along the Ladner Memorial Park on 47 avenue and along 47A avenue. Parking in front of the church will be reserved for our speakers so they can haul their precious plants inside for you to buy. Parking in the business area of historic Ladner is limited to three hours but may be long enough for you to hear a speaker and visit the vendors.
The ladies of the church will have refreshments so you can grab a coffee or a sandwich as you browse the show. We look forward to having fun next Saturday and hope to see you there. This event is a fundraiser for the Ladner Community Garden Society so that we can help support school gardens in our community.
A big thanks goes to the Ladner United Church for hosting our event. We couldn't have done it without your support.
