Today, Tuesday, Oct. 30, is the last day of our Plant Sales Season
Dear Friends and Fellow Gardeners,
Today is the very last day of our 2018 nursery season. Each year when this day comes, we feel a bit melancholy; we have enjoyed your company so much through the past 8 months, and will miss you! Of course, we hope to see you here in November and December at our Holiday Gift Market (see below).
As our nursery season is closing, we would like to thank you very sincerely for your business and support that makes it possible for us to continue presenting and growing Harlequin’s Gardens year after year.
And we would especially like to express our gratitude for who you are: people who Care and Act in support of our Earth and our future generations. You care about conserving our precious water. You care about conserving our limited energy and getting that energy from renewable sources. You care about reducing our carbon emissions and reversing global climate change. You care about reducing or eliminating the poisons that are used in gardening and agriculture. You care about healthy, organic food and many of you grow fresh food for yourselves and to share with our community. You care about Nature and growing our local natives in your home gardens. You care about the birds, pollinators and the earthworms, and even about the health of beneficial fungi and bacteria.
And these are some of the reasons you shop at Harlequin’s Gardens and why we work so intensely to manifest the above values as much as we are able. Together we are actually making a difference on our planet and in our local ecology. We couldn’t do it without you!
“Every time you spend money, you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want.”
HOLIDAY GIFT MARKET!
We will re-open for our fabulous 7th Annual Holiday Gift Market on Green Friday, Nov. 23 – Dec. 24, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM. Stay tuned for more details!
Pictured left, Marie Foucault-Phipps’ stunning, intriguing, and elegant glass tableware! Using a technique that dates as far back as the 9th century (Turkey), Marie paints her original designs with ‘Silver Stain’ (silver oxide) on clear glass pieces. They are then fired in a kiln and emerge with a rich and exciting color palette ranging from yellows and golds to deep coppery oranges, and molten reds! She describes it as “a wild medium, not reliable, and always surprising” and says she enjoys “exploiting its freedom”.
