Share what you grow night is coming up in Edmonton this month, and though probably not your ideal way to spend a Friday night out, it does afford you the chance to see a different side of Canada. Horticultural and the preservation of the planet are hot topics in Canada right now, and being a part of that momentum only solidifies your future.
Activities Planned for What We Grow
Participants to the what we grow night are invited to bring with them samples of their homegrown flowers and produce to share with others. Photos are also accepted in order to make it easier to share information with your fellow gardeners about how you are taking care of your crops.
We’re even going to bring some practical skill and sport to the event by getting the guys from Fast Flight Archery to bring their best bows and arrow set ups plus some targets, which should be pretty smashing.
This year’s event on August 31st will be extra special as the famed gardener and author Kevin Napora will be making a special appearance to endorse his new book “The Perfect Time to Garden (is not necessarily right now)”. You can purchase a copy of the book from Amazon in order to have it signed by Napora during his time in Edmonton.
For some, gardening is not much more than a hobby, but for others it is our passion. Real gardeners devour everything morsel they can about their passion, whether it be the tools they use or the seeds they plant. It may not seem as exciting as a night club full of booze and babes, but for those who take dirt and horticulture seriously, it is.
Take a look around your world to get a better look at how horticultural is improving on it. Canada is full of natural gardens outside and in, that beautify our world in rich, bold colors. These are valuable tools to use not only to excite our senses, but to help protect our delicate environment. Plants, trees and shrubs all help to clean our breathing air and offer us protection from the sun and contaminants. Supporting those who are passionate about horticulture is a step towards ensuring our future on the planet.
Chances are you are not going to make it to the share what you grow event, but you can still support the effort by sharing the details with others who may be interested. Our planet thrives in a very delicate balance, and we should do what is possible to help maintain that.
