Heritage Vegetables, Saving Seeds, and Annual Meeting

  • Glenevis Hall 1 St W Glenevis, AB, T0E 0X0 Canada

Our first event of the year is Thursday, April 21th. Join us at the Glenevis Hall at 6:00pm for a light supper. The Annual Meeting at 7:00pm includes an overview of the 2015 season and a look toward our plans for 2016.

This year’s guest speaker Denise O’Reilly farms near Cherhill.  Her seed company A’Bunadh Seeds specializes in short season open-pollinated and heritage seeds. At 7:45pm learn from Denise about heritage vegetable varieties and how home gardeners can grow and save their own seed.

Throughout the evening there is an opportunity to buy or renew a Garden membership and to find out about the varied volunteer opportunities at Pegg. Denise will have a selection of seeds and garlic for sale.  If you’d like to try some of her interesting potatoes visit A’Bunadh’s website and order them in advance.

Denise is launching a vegetable seed saving cooperative program and Pegg Garden is participating this summer.  Come out to hear about the project.

The Glenevis Community Hall is just south of the Pegg Garden, south off highway 43 at Range Road 42A.  Admission is by donation. For more information call the Garden at 780-203-0331.
