Orchard Opening 2020 – Planting Annuals & Perennials
Sunday, May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
This event will proceed with safety protocols in place. Please see below.
Check out the orchard and see what taking care of it is all about! We will be planting annual flowers, tomatoes and more in our raised beds. Join us for this wonderful afternoon of learning and fun!
We are working closely with the City of Edmonton and Alberta Health Services to ensure we are complying with all rules and regulations given the COVID-19 pandemic.
We want to ensure everyone is safe, and thus the followings rules will be in place for this event.
- There will no sharing of tools, and everyone will need to bring their own tools, and gloves. It is recommended that gardening gloves be worn, and a short spade to dig out large tap roots. If you don’t have a short spade, your hands can do wonders.
- Face masks are recommended on site to protect yourself and others.
- Social distancing must be practiced at all times (6 ft.) We will work out the logistics of where people can work once everyone is on site.
- It is recommended that hand sanitizer be brought as we do not have any in stock.
- The building is closed and thus there will be no access to the washrooms. It is suggested that you go to the bathroom before you come.
The standard Orchard rules will apply:
- Dress appropriately for the weather (hat, sunglasses, etc)
- Closed toed shoes must be worn
- Bring sunscreen
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
A family friendly event!
