tea party take 2

Ok, the weather is supposed to be nice next sunday the 6th, so we’ll try again then, same time (1 pm). My guess is it will be a bit chilly to do in the garden, but the NSPIRG office (rm 314 of the SUB) should be nice and cozy. Heres the event description again:

Seemore Green is hosting a Tea Party (we’re talking the drink, not the off-its-rocker political movement). In the first half of the workshop Kaleigh will introduce us to some of the many medicinal herbs that can be found wild and in the garden and we’ll try some of the ones we have growing. The second half of the workshop will feature Connor and his incredible knowledge and passion for Camellia, or the tea plant from which white, green, and black teas are harvested and processed. He’ll also be bringing a long some of his favourites for us to sample. Bringing your own mug is greatly appreciated, but not necessary. Also feel free to bring your own medicinals, decoctions, tinctures, or teas worth knowing about.

It’s almost halloween and theres gonna be lots of vampires out so to be extra safe you should come help plant some garlic and do some mulching before winter sets in so it can be harvested next summer. Did you know there are over 600 cultivars of garlic and that the collapse of the soviet union greatly increased Canada’s available cultivars? . Garlic is awesome, it should be the first ingredient in any recipe (except maybe cakes…maybe) and it is so good for you too. I’ll probably be planting some hardier crops like kale and spinach that can handle a bit of cold.

Planting will take place at the garden, 1411 Seymour St on Sunday October 30th. I’ll get started a little after 1.

Tea party postponed

hey folks,
i hate to do this but I think we’re gonna have to postpone due to the weather. this is such a cool event, i’d hate for it to happen without full attendance. This will definitely still happen, so stay posted for the new date!
Alexander

hey folks,

as you might have noticed, it’s raining and almost certainly will be tomorrow.  A tea party in a rainy garden might not be the most pleasant thing in the world, so we’ll be moving into the NSPIRG office (room 314 in the SUB). The party will still be starting at 1 pm.

hope to see you there,

Alexander, Interim Seemore Green Coordinator

Sealing the Shed

This friday we’ll be putting sealant on the new at the Henry St. site (Behind the computer science building) from 10:30-2:30.  It would be great to have some extra hands!
