DELUXE DIY at HOME WORKSHOPS 

Anybody else looking forward to getting outside in the garden?
Well, to get you in the spirit of things while we are all in lockdown (again), here is a whole new set of DIY at HOME WORKSHOPS.

The idea is – you pick up all of your materials on Friday or Saturday, & then follow along Elaine’s “How to Videos”  (if you’ve been watching these – you will know that they are down-to-earth informative & rather entertaining to boot !)

We’ve lined up 2 sets – this one, listed here – we are calling DELUXE DIY – because the project takes  a little more finesse – and also we are featuring all of our best containers ! Hence the price is a little higher ($125+ or $475 for a set of 4 – you pick which 4 you want)
Our other set  – MINI DIY WORKSHOPS (so called as they are quick to put together and are $75 each or $225 for set of 4)

ANYWAY – it is our little way of bringing forth a bit of joy ! Jump on our videos alone – or get a few friends on Zoom together & make it like a Virtual Garden Party!

The full listing for both sets can be found here.

Curbside During Lockdown

Yesterday, as you know, Ontario issued a stay at home order – but also at the same time is allowing non-essential retailers to be open for Curbside Pickup between 7am & 8pm – which admittedly sounded a bit confusing to me.

Anyway – this is how we are going to move forward to try to keep us all safe:

During these new restrictions we plan to be open for Curbside Pickup each week on Saturdays only between 11:00 & 2:00.
