CHS September Meeting; Bulbs of Fire: Garlic!
September 30 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Join us and discover the world of garlic! In 2006 Bart Nagel and his wife Simone came to Canada from Holland. Keeping their European traditions, they started raising chickens for eggs and growing their own organic vegetables including garlic. Little did they know how the ‘bulbs of fire’ would change their life. Their farm-based business, now known as ‘Bulbs of Fire’, today grows 35 different strains of heirloom garlic from all over the world, both soft and hard-neck. Bart’s love of the spicy root leads him to experiment with new varieties every year along with the classic types we all know and love.
Bart sells at farmer’s markets, the farm and also offers a subscription service for the rarer types. Selling both retail and wholesale he has made it his mission to spread gourmet garlic as far and wide as he can. Join us for this special presentation and the chance to add ‘Bulbs of Fire’ garlic varieties to your garden.
Winners from the Enchanted Garden Challenge will be announced and awards presented! Come out and see what our Youth Members have been busy growing over the summer! $400 of prize money to be awarded!
Flower Show will also be presented. All members wishing to exhibit must have entries in place by 7 pm. Judging starts at 7 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm
