Fall Fair looking for volunteer to take over garden

The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association is in need of a volunteer, who might be sporting a green thumb

The call is out.  The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association is in need of a volunteer, or volunteers, who might be sporting a green thumb and like to play in the dirt.

The Fair’s Companion Garden annually welcomes visitors to pathways around a small green space with raised flower and vegetable beds, a shaded bench, and a small gazebo.  Many of the plantings are perennials, and there is a budget provided to stock the garden for the current year.  Fair reps say the garden needs to be attended to now for the coming season, with the idea that vegetables will be at their peak for the annual Labour Day weekend Fall Fair.

“We invite anyone who might like to try their hand at gardening, or those who have some experience to give us a call,” said NTFFRA president Jill Hayward, “The garden is a place for visitors to learn what grows well together, and the plantings can reflect the ideas of those who are tending them.”

Call Jill at 250-319-8023 for more information.
