Celebrate King St.

Transportation

Speaking of rush hour, traffic and the overall frustration that driving around London can bring-we have an event coming up next week that might be of, interest.

The City of London will be collaborating with us on Thursday June 13th to celebrate the completion of the King St. bike lane. Regardless of what mode of transportation you use, this will be a great opportunity to get more understanding of what is going on downtown London, how you can get involved as our community changes and grows.

June 13th, mark it on your calendars and come down to the market 4-7.

Worms Worms Worms

Every year as people gear up for gardening season we look for different ways to nourish our plants.

This weekend Saturday June 8th we will have a vendor who will be selling worm castings. Never heard of them? Here is some information below from www.planetnatural.com

What makes worm castings so great? It’s the worm. As it digests the organic materials it consumes, it refines them. Nutrients, including minerals and trace elements, are reduced to their most usable form.

Worm castings make soil more absorbent, making moisture more consistently available to plants and preventing soil from completely drying out.

Worms introduce uncountable numbers of beneficial microbes and bacteria into the finished product, guaranteeing the healthiest soil possible. In addition, castings contain humic acid which aids plant nutrient absorption.

Studies show that germination and seedling growth is improved by planting in worm castings. In short, worm castings are the super food of garden plants.

This Saturday only, come get your plant food!
