Well the time has finally come! We are up and running and growing bedding plants again! Yeah! We are super excited to share our catalogue with you. More varieties will become available as we settle into our greenhouse routine.
We’ll be at the Mary Jane’s Cooking School 7th Annual Garden Party Fundraiser on Saturday, May 28th. Hope you can come by and say hello! More details to follow!
A few words to tell you that we are still alive and well! We had a bountiful harvest for our first year and the greenhouse is almost up!
We also wanted to take the time to thank all of the people who helped us get where we are today!
Thank you Annie, Lee and Aurora for inspiring us and letting me couch surf in the little camper last summer! Thank you Doug of the Rennie General Store for letting us use your truck on several occasions! Thank you Larry for helping us move in Sidney and letting us store some of our garden equipment at your place! Thank you Paul and Dawn for letting us use your garage space!
There are others locally that helped out too… Jenny and Michel of Moon Gate Bed & Breakfast for letting us plant a garden! Thank you Shannon of the Spicy Radish for setting us up with worms for our vermi-compost and Papa Spicy for the garden compost! Thank you Kyla and Matt for the wonderful moo poo! Thank you Noel and Randa and Craig for being hospitable and generous neighbours, and the Penners for being such wonderful landlords!

Wanted to let you know that we are almost settled at our new location in the east! The stakes are in the ground and we’ll be putting up the greenhouse soon! Looking forward to digging new gardens too!
We are very excited about what this year will bring. We have made new connections with some local artists and businesses and made new friends.

Just wanted to share some pics of the plants we have in the greenhouse. They will soon be moved east for planting in the garden!
Grey skies are going to clear up, put on a happy face… is what we are all hoping for!
Well, May is here and along with May comes Mother’s Day, the May long-weekend and farmers are beginning to seed their fields!
Here at JUST Community Market Co-op, we are planning a new beginning on the east side of the province. We are on the move again. From the Spruce Woods Park area we travel to the Whiteshell near Whitemouth where prairie meets boreal forest.
We are very excited to be setting up camp with friends Annie Bergen, Lee Holleron and their adorable daughter Aurora – not to mention Tucker (the dog), Precious and Sketchy (the cats), BB King (the goat), their ducks, chickens and new family of rabbits and miniature horse.
Sounds like fun and many new adventures on the horizon! We hope to be set up, including the garden and greenhouse, by the end of August, so we’ll keep you posted.
If you’d like to say hello and catch up, we’ll be helping out at Mary Jane’s Cooking School 5th Annual Garden Party Fundraiser on Saturday, May 17th at 252 Arlington (at Portage behind Kendrick Printing).
