The ‘treelings’ folks are really pleased to offer native hardwoods this year (2013) including Eastern Hemlock, White Ash, Elderberry, Bayberry. Our own replanting projects incorporate Acadian Forest Restorations. More info to come.

Wild Strawberries are ripe in Nova Scotia! Find a field or roadside and pick to your heart's content! Put them on your cereal, make jam, add cream and sugar in a bowl, or just pop 'em in your mouth! Small but delicious!
Cultivated strawberries are ripe too & we'll be celebrating Canada Day Weekend with fresh Strawberry Crepes, Jurgen's specialty. Stay tuned for the recipe!
Baby trees all dressed up in natural burlap with an Earth Day green ribbon. One of our customers will be super eco-conscious by presenting treelings in recycled brown paper bags, stamped with a logo and message (Hint – It’s a school!).
We’re swamped! April looks to be a really busy order month. Earth Day, spring weddings, and a Christening, all great reasons to plant a memory, plant a tree. Also getting the beginnings of landscaping orders. Yikes.
Spring is busting out early this year, so we’ll be holding yard sales at the Trail Stop every Sunny Sunday from 8:00 a.m. ’til 3:00 – weather permitting.
“If it’s rain or snow, we won’t go”!” For table information, please call 347-2602
This year’s tree seedlings are ready to go for anyone on the Shore who wants to plant a tree for Earth Day. $1.
The little Red Pines are really attractive, but what I like the most is that the Red Pine is indigenous to Nova Scotia, but not seen that often anymore.
Planting Red Pine seedlings is helping to restore it along the Eastern Shore. Pictures soon.
Garden Swap Meet
Buy and sell, barter or swap your surplus seed, bulbs, plants, garden tools and equipment with other Eastern Shore EAST gardeners.
Join us at the Trail Stop in Moser River, just east of the bridge on Saturday, April 18th between 9:00 and 2:00. Hot drinks and munchies, courtesy of the Trail Stop.
For FREE table information, call Gail at 347-2602. We’ll have a few tables available, but if you can bring one, that helps a lot. Other ‘spring’ stuff, like bicycles, etc? Why not? It’s an opportunity to say hello to your neighbours after a long miserable winter.
If it’s a sunny and warm day, we’ll have the ice cream stand going and of course, fresh farm eggs in any weather! These sell out fast, so speak quickly for them.
Snow/rain/hail location: The “Stone Soup Cafe” on the hill @ 35 Parkers Loop Road, better known the “Shellnut Property” or “The Prospector’s”.
The house is visible as you cross the Moser River Bridge, heading east.
Seedy Saturday! Barter, swap or sell your surplus seeds, bulbs & plants, garden tools & equipment on Seedy Saturday, April 18th, 10:00 am ’til 2 pm.
We’re having a get together with other local gardeners to share seeds, bulbs and information – we’re interested in and experimenting with extending the growing season and growing various grains for seed.
Free table space for your gardening stuff! Call Gail 347-2602.
