he 22nd Annual La Montanita Co-op Earth Fest is being held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 22. “Yes, it’s that time again,” says Co-op member, Robin Seydel, “Time to come together, think about how to restore and sustain our planet, plan our gardens, get seeds and seedlings, and just generally celebrate the season with friends and family in our Co- op neighborhoods!”


Each year it is the


Co-op’s great pleasure to create community celebrations that pro- vide an opportunity for the community to come together. Earth Fest is a chance to get bedding plants,


he spring gardening season is once again being kicked off at the Spring Garden Fair and Plant Sale where the Council of Albuquerque Garden Clubs and many of their member clubs will have an un- matched selection of plants available. There will be award-winning daylil- ies, African violets and special pots, dahlia tubers, container gardens and


companion plants, xeric plants, and unusual heirloom tomato seedlings offered by various member clubs.


Council, the parent organization, will be selling annuals, perennials, single


herbs and vegetables, tomato patches, herb gardens, and unique home-dug plants already acclimated to Albuquerque. In addition, master gardeners will be answering gardening questions, members of the clubs will be there to discuss their favorite plants, and there will be tool sharpening. The fun begins on Friday, April 26 from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The best plants disappear early so put these dates on your calendar and come with lots of cash/checks since only the Council pay stations take credit.
