<p>We have spent many hours moving, cleaning, sorting, decorating and setting up for the tea that is going to take place tomorrow from 1pm to 4pm rain or shine. We hope it’s rain. <br/>
The Growing Hope Tea is a fundraiser that we do that helps, encourages, lightens, and promotes a brighter day to many people that feel that life has dealt them a heavy cloud. Growing Hope has distributed over $29,000 over the past 10 years to our surrounding communities. It is a way for us to support others and also a way to say thank you for supporting me, my family and my staff in a business that we are passionate about. <br/>
If you want to know more about what we do; don’t hesitate in asking me,Judy, about some of the things we have funded. We don’t advertise our support as it is important that we remain anonymous in many cases.<br/>
So I hope your afternoon is free to come to the greenhouse to take part in our one day sales, raffles and 50/50 tickets. <br/>
Your admission is $5 which also gets you entered into the door prize draw. <br/>
The tea includes homemade desserts, fresh fruit, beverages, and an atmosphere of an old fashioned garden party. <br/>
All proceeds from the tea and greenhouse sales will go towards funding the Growing Hope Trust Fund and Canadian Student Leadership Conference 2020 (which our daughter,Katelyn is part of in Yorkton).<br/>
Thank you for your continued support and “Growing Hope” in many lives</p>

2019 a year to come

2019, a year of more classes, a year of teaching, a year of new contacts, a year to be excited about.  Wow that seems like such a large list of goals to achieve in such a short amount of time.  Well, check, check, check, and check; goals accomplished. lol  It is easy to set your goals for a season when they are already set in motion.  I didn’t say that my goals were accomplished, I did say that they are set and on their way to success.  

A year of more classes.  In 2018, I had started to offer succulent classes in the spring, followed by annual planting classes, which lead to fall arrangements and Christmas centerpieces.  I knew that I enjoy teaching but after a season like last year I now know that I LOVE!!! teaching about plants.  So when the opportunity came to do more classes and fundraisers for 2019, I jumped on the ride. I can’t wait for it all to start and I look forward to seeing you throughout the season.

A year of teaching. Well who knew a greenhouse junky could teach.  lol It is one of my passions and I love to see children become more active in gardening and knowing where their food comes from.  It is satisfying to see those little and sometimes not so little eyes light up when their cup of wheat, peas, whatever we plant, comes out of the ground.  They really feel a sense of pride that they can grow something. I feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that I helped in that process.  LOVE IT!!!!

A year of new contacts. With doing the classes away from the greenhouse, it has opened up my doors to new and exciting people that are like minded and eager for spring, eager to plant, and eager to make things beautiful.  Being surrounded by like-minded people is inspiring and fills this greenhouse lady’s heart with gratitude.

A year to be excited about.  This year not only are we offering more classes and fundraising opportunities but I am opening an online store that will feature plants or potted arrangements for that week only.  This will be a one week special only and they are a one of a kind service that we will provide.  Limited amounts will be posted during that week and you will have the chance to purchase or save your “Weekly Treat” through our website store.  The offers will run from March 12, 2019 to June 11, 2019.  I am excited and nervous all in the same breath.  As with anything new it is the unexpected that has me up at night lol

SOOOOOO…. we will be starting production at the end of February with planting geraniums and so on and so forth.  I’ve got some new staff coming this year so stop by and say hello.  We will be opening for annual sales only May 1, 2019 to May 13, 2019 which will give us the time to bring in the water plants, trees, shrubs, perennials, etc. that usually arrive around May 10 or so.  Starting May 13, 2019 we will be fully open to sell all our available products.  What I ask of you if your coming the first 10 days of May is to be patient, don’t mind the chaos, and please ask for assistance.  We have ALOT!!!!! on our plates and will be moving product into its place for the season. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care until next time,

And what a May long weekend it was

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Wednesday, May 23, 2012,
What a great weekend we had.  The threat of rain went away and the sunshine was a warm welcome.  The greenhouse was very busy but it was a very welcome busy.  When the greenhouse closed Saturday night it looked like we had been robbed.  There were empty shelves, and plants everywhere.  Sunday when I came home from the flea market, my sister had moved things so it was like starting the season again.  Looking for plants because they had been moved. What a great feeling.  I hope that your expect...

Some Funnies

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Saturday, May 5, 2012,
 I had a local artist named Madison Blackstone paint new signs for the highways.  I am absolutely in love with them.  Hope you appreciate them as much as me. 
Janelle, Katelyn and Jolan pretending to be busy.  This is Janelle and Katelyn being silly.
This is Mary Hudy explaining to us that she doesn't need to wash her hands. Dirts good for you.
 I love this woman to pieces. She is in her 90's and comes to plant my begonias. She blesses every one of them.
  This is what happens when the cat is aw...

Just wondering???

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Thursday, May 3, 2012,
I am just wondering if anyone has tried the chat site.  I don't know if it is working, so if someone could email me to say whether or not they have tried.  Also, to those of you that have joined my contact list, Thank you.  I am trying to put together a newsletter that would go out every two weeks.  Hoping to find some time to get it done.   lol
Until next time,
Judy
