The Great Sunflower on Earth Day

Today on Earth Day, Canby Community Garden Association will be participating in the celebration at  Baker Prairie Middle School in the commons. It is from 6:30 to 8pm.
Come join us! We will have information on our free "Seed to Table" classes and will be happy to answer garden questions.

We will also have free Lemon Queen Sunflower seeds. These are the type of sunflower that you plant to participate in The Great Sunflower Project. It is a project in which thousands of every day people plant a Lemon Queen sunflower and then register online to report the pollinators they see in 15 minutes of watching the blooms. It's really easy and fun.

Putting Up Our New Tent!

Canby Community Garden Association got together this Sunday to practice putting up our tent that we will be using as a booth this April 30th and May 1st, at the Master Gardeners Spring Plant Fair held at the Clackamas County Event Center (Fair Grounds). Come see us! We'll be in space C49.


We have a larger version of this tent to use as our classroom for our free "Seed to Table" gardening classes being held all summer, around town in our traveling classroom. Check out our web site for the class calendar.
