Get Growing Day

2016-05-08 @ 12:00 - 15:00

Visit the Facebook event!

This past winter has been very mild and the spring seems to be happening very early this year. The longer days are happening – people are enjoying patio life, getting their yards tidy and you see more people bicycling and walking in the neighbourhoods.

People have started to propagate their seeds to get a head start on the growing season. People have been proudly sharing their tomato and pepper sprouts on Facebook and Twitter – it is an annual renewal of growth and hope of good things to come :).

Earth’s General Store wants people to grow more of their own food. We believe that growing, processing, cooking, and eating food from our own labour, our own land, our own imagination is healthy, nurturing, spiritually and physically connecting to nature, gives us an appreciation of what goes into growing food and saves you money.

We offer an excellent selection of certified organic, Non-GMO, heritage, open pollinated, heirloom seeds from a variety of seed houses: Harmonic Seeds (Barrhead, AB) and West Coast Seeds (Lower Mainland, BC).

To kick off the growing season Earth’s General Store is having our Fourth annual gardening day (now called “Get Growing Day”) on Sunday, May 8th. People will have the opportunity to purchase organic seedlings, apple trees, pear trees, fertilizers, soil, and a whole range of other items.

May 8th is also Mother’s Day (and one of our Sunday Savings Sale Day so you can save 15% off in store purchases). What better way to celebrate this day than to work with mother nature to create a bounty to nourish our bodies, or families, and, if done correctly, the planet?
