Native Planting Party

The Queen Alexandra Garden Project’s last event of the year is a Native Planting Party!

Join us on Saturday, October 29 from 1-3pm as we plant Huckleberries, Saskatoon berries, Salmonberries, Salal, Oregon Grape. Learn about these native plants, and help create a food forest for the Queen Alexandra school community.

Bring your friends & family, and dress for the outdoors. We’ll provide a covered area, and snacks & hot drinks to keep everyone happy. See you there!
