Harvest Fest!!

On Thursday September 1st Frog Hollow is holding it’s annual Harvest Fest. It’s a neighbourhood celebration of the beauty and bounty of the harvest season and the importance of home gardening; after all, home gardening benefits your individual health, reduces your environmental impact AND gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment!

So come to Clinton Park at the corner of Grant and Slocan St. from 10am -2pm and celebrate the harvest, celebrate your impact and celebrate community!

But this isn’t just about gardeners.  Everyone is welcome! There will be live music, singing, dancing, yoga, face painting, seed give aways, a learning garden and more!!

You could win for the vibrant red of your pepper, the beautiful curve of the zucchini, or the quirky personality of that carrot! Entry closes at 11:45 and judging begins at noon.
