Here’s what’s happening at Greentree Village this August:
AUGUST 13TH – FORAGE ON THE FARM
Join us for an amazing farm to table dining experience right here at our own Bloomfield Garden Centre.
- First enjoy a plant walk led by Melanie Isles of Full Bloom Herbals as we explore and identify wild edibles that may even grow in your own backyard! From Fireweed to pennycress, there’s a whole world of plants to discover.
- Then it’s into the greenhouse with owners Tarance and Wendy to pick some vine-ripened tomatoes.
- Finally, you’ll finish up in the beautiful atrium at Bloomfield for a delicious, family-style meal cooked by the team at Back to Good (from Strathmore). The menu includes some of the area’s best bounty like TK Ranch beef sausage, local dairy, red fife wheat and honey, and all enjoyed with cold brew wild mint tea.Hosted by Community Futures Wild Rose, Bloomfield Garden Centre at Greentree Village, Back to Good Whole Foods Market & Deli and Full Bloom Herbals.
