Last Saturday, a group of enthusiastic volunteers and members have joined a great day of work out at the grounds and gardens to clean up the debris and waste left over from the long winter. Many have brought along their families and even pets to have a work day outing surrounded by blooming tulips and other spring flowers. Bruce, Barbara and Mary Lou were there to serve the BBQ’s and drinks to the hardworking volunteers and members.
Thanks to Jane and other gardening volunteers for all the hard works in trimming, pruning and keeping the forever beauty of the Heritage Gardens. In the small greenhouses and plant nursery at the back of the Heritage Gardens, they have also spent days in seeding, growing and nourishing plants that will be put up for sale on the upcoming Annual Plant Sale to be held on the weekend of May 7 and 8, 2016.
Today is the March Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and officially marks the first day of Spring! Even though we have been hit by weird weather recently, we can still see clear signs of Spring in the Heritage Gardens with budding plants and blooming spring flowers. Tulips are late to bloom and we won’t be seeing that many around the Farmhouse this coming Easter.
But inside the Farmhouse, we can see all kinds of decoration already put up for the celebration of Easter this coming weekend. The Tea Room will feature an Easter Tea with special goodies including an Easter Eggs Tart and a Chick Cookie served along with a scone and tea. Some specially sourced Easter gifts are up for sale in the Gift Shop. All visiting guests can enter for the Easter Basket Draw.
For kids, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt in the Heritage Gardens. They can also participate in the Easter Eggs Count contest and winner will receive a jar of Easter Eggs as prize. In addition, there will be some treat bags available and each kid can collect one plastic Easter Egg with a note inside to redeem in the Tea Room. All-in-all, there will be lots for fun for kids.
Let’s celebrate Easter and bring your family and friends over to London Heritage Farm this coming Saturday and Sunday, March 26th and 27th. The Tea Room, Gift Shop and Museum in the Farmhouse will be open from 12 to 5 pm.
