Join us at Gardenscape!

Step into spring at Prairieland Park from March 25th-27th.  The SHS Gardenscape Committee has been busy planning our booth for this in-person event.  We are going to set up a display to stimulate your senses and include plants and elements with interesting colours, textures, and sounds.     

We are still looking for volunteers for our booth at Gardenscape, especially for Saturday and Sunday.  If you are interested in receiving a free admission pass to Gardenscape in exchange for working one shift at our booth, please fill out the Google Form at this link.

At our booth, we will be selling memberships, cherry pitters, replacement springs and gaskets, and bee nests. The cherry pitters work well with sour cherries and come in two styles, suction and clamp.  The bee nests are for solitary pollen bees and feature different sized holes for different sized bees.  Solitary bees are in decline because of loss of habitat, so pick up a bee nest to take part in saving the bees. (And if you'd like to see the bee nests in action, check out this video from our Cultivating Resilience video series.)

A huge THANK YOU to those who are going to be volunteering at Gardenscape - passes will be mailed the week of March 14.     

Please come by the SHS booth and talk gardening, renew your membership, and see what is happening with the Saskatoon Horticultural Society this year.  Don’t forget to enter your name for one of our door prizes. 

Hope to see you all there!
