The 1st Annual Atlantic Rose Hip Festival!!

I'm a bad blogger! So sorry for the neglect.. I've been weighed down with magazine deadlines, pre-book promo, lectures, the radio show, book #2 groundwork and life. Yet, a good post is coming soon, I promise!! Until then, I thought I would post this exciting upcoming event at the incredible Bunchberry Nurseries in Upper Clements, NS. It takes place in just a week - what a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, eh?! It's the first Rose Hip Festival that I've caught wind of and it promises to be a fun, informative and tasty event - hello, rose-hip nibblies!!

Hello Folks

We are starting a new tradition at the nursery, and you are invited to be part of it.  

Sunday, October 9th from 12 to 4 pm we will be hosting the first annual 'Atlantic Rose Hip Festival'.  Enjoy a fun filled afternoon of outrageous events for the entire family.  

Participate in the 'Giant Rose Hip Weigh-Off'.  Grand prize winnings are a $100 gift certificate from yours truly, Bunchberry Nurseries.

Other events include 'Rose Hip Fly-Swatter Badminton'.  This sport is definitely destined to be an Olympic Games contender.  

There will be a 'Harvest Arrangement Competition' open to members of the Nova Scotia Garden Club Association.  

Annapolis Royal and the surrounding area is famous for it's Bed and Breakfasts.  We have put out the challenge for a muffin bake-off.  Come and see which inn will have the bragging rights to the best breakfast muffin in the region.  

Join us for a celebration of our harvest.  Fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams and jellies and other foods will be available for purchase from local producers.  

This is just a sampling of the events for a fun filled afternoon.  

The feature nursery plants for the event will be those 'Perfect for Pollinators'.  These plants will be reduced by 25-75%.

Hope to see you Sunday, October 9th.
