Members of the North Thompson Valley Garden Club enjoyed a lovely day on June 10 at the Community Garden.

After a leisurely pot luck lunch, members chatted and strolled the garden, looking at all the many improvements that have been made over the last few weeks – the new sprinkler system, new gravel on the walkways, and five brand new composting bins.

The bins were made by members Doris and Franz Friesinger.

Bob Loucks, of Bob’s Barriere Glass, and his wife Deb dropped by around 1 p.m. to put in the new glass cover he had donated for the bulletin board, helped out by Franz Friesinger.

The next group event will be a garden tour at Pinantan Lake for Garden Club members in July, and on September 8, the Club will host their Harvest Festival at the Barriere Community Garden.

This year it will be on from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  All are welcome to come out and enjoy this Festival, where there will be lots of garden produce, good entertainment, and a tomato tasting contest.
