SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2014
I am SO excited! My friend Mark Shadle, owner of G-Zen restaurant, has offered to bring his Gmonkey food truck to Natureworks on Saturday, October 4th. This is the nation’s first all vegetarian, eco-friendly food truck. He will be selling an assortment of organic eats and treats “from farm to street”.
From the Gmonkey food truck last year at a summer festival. I can’t believe they are going to be at Natureworks this Saturday!!!
Free Workshops: Saturday morning
Bulb Basics for Beginners
9:30 – 10:30 am
Which end is up? How deep do I plant them? How many should I put in a grouping? These and other questions will be answered as Nancy introduces the wonderful world of spring and early summer blooming hardy flower bulbs to a new generation of gardeners. No question is too basic. And no garden is complete without bulbs.
Bulbs in Bloom February – July
11:00 – 12:00 pm
Nancy will focus on which bulbs bloom when and help you plan a bulb garden that will bloom for many months. You will learn how to intermingle bulbs with perennials and shrubs to double or triple the color in any space. There are major differences in specific varieties of bulbs that will be revealed to you. A Bulb Season of Bloom chart will be explained as well as tracing paper overlays for bulb plans to embellish your gardens.

Artist Fair Sunday 10:00 – 2:00 pm
We have invited some of our favorite local craftspeople and artists to set up tents on our lawn and sell their creations during our Bulbs for Breast Cancer fund-raiser. Wait until you see what we have in store!
The Wooly Sisters are amazing! They take woolen sweaters and make them into mittens and all kinds of other creative items.
Our buddies from Consign and Design in Branford will be here with a truckload of goodies. If you haven’t discovered this great store (in the former Hilltop Orchards building) you will be thrilled at the quality, selection, and prices.
I met Bob Keating at the CT Horticultural Society winter conference this year. His hand-wrought iron plants supports sold like crazy. He is a local artist- you will love his work and his prices.
