We tallied our final numbers for the Sale & Silent Auction we hosted on June 15, and we are very, very happy to announce that YOU raised $3,521 to benefit Families First! You broke the record too! That is the largest donation amount this event has ever generated in its 9-year history.
Through the event’s overbids and tickets sales, you were able to provide a very nice donation to support a vital health center providing critical services to families and individuals across the Seacoast.
Watch your fingers! It’s time for our annual Carnivorous Plant Day! (Just kidding – your fingers won’t be harmed.) Steve Branchaud, a plant enthusiast with extensive knowledge growing award-winning carnivorous plants, and a beloved employee here at Rolling Green Nursery, will teach us about these extraordinary plants — many of them native to new England. He will explain what and how they eat, and share some fun facts and professional care techniques.
Here are the topics he will cover in class:
As part of our Garden School Series, please join us for a presentation on pollinators of New England with Joe Marttila, owner of SeaBee Honey in Rye, NH. They manage numerous apiaries in towns such as Epping, Stratham, Exeter, Rye, Hampton Falls and North Hampton with the mission to preserve both pollinators and farmland in the Seacoast.
He will give you a basic understanding of honey bees and other native pollinators, and explain why pollinators play such a critical role in the ecosystem.
