We want to thank all our sponsors again and also to thank you, who supported our wonderful local 4-H group. We raised $600 for them with the raffle. The 4-H is also having a fundraising garage sale at the Springwater Grange this Saturday from 7am to noon. Springwater Grange #263 is located near Estacada at 24591 S. Wallens Road. Take Highway 211 south, out of Estacada, and turn right on Wallens Road.
THIS IS THE PERFECT WAY TO START YOUR WEEK-END! For you that don't know, the Springwater Grange hosts a wonderful $5 egg, bacon, biscuits, biscuits and gravy, and pancake breakfast September - May. It is held the first Saturday of the month. This month proceeds from the breakfast go to the Ash Butte Grange, in Jefferson County , that burned down Easter morning. No fire station support, no fire insurance so Granges throughout Oregon are trying to raise money to help rebuild. SO you can attend a garage sale and have a wonderful breakfast all in the same place. Then of course, come to The Wade Creek House to see what is new. You will be glad you did!
SO WHAT IS NEXT?? May 12 is to make a Live Herb Wreath (if Nikki's herbs perk up) or live sedum wreath.
Then May 19 is our 5th Annual Spring Garden Fair where we have speakers throughout the day talking about:
10am - Why Compost? and How!
11am - Heirloom Vegetables with plants for sale
Noon - Moles - Learn what to do from the expert
1pm - Lavender - growing, propagating, cooking and crafting
2pm - Growing Microgreens - Natures Superfood
All seminars FREE!
Kimberly’s Garden Nursery & Old Farmhouse Nursery will be there offering a wide variety of plants, grasses, hanging baskets & planters.
I will be posting a new tour of the shop soon. See you soon!
