…Holy Snowflake, v.2 !

Jefferson County snow days, late February 2019

Right now as I write this post, winter’s white glove is holding firm, very firm on Central Oregon! Exactly 2 years ago we also had quite a late “big” snow event, so this is not unusual to be happening here, and I know were all hoping  it will nudge the moisture content upwards so it will lessen the shortages our farmers are facing this season. 

This late snow event has delayed our planned opening this season. We are now going to be open for business on Tuesday, March 19th. Our hours will be 9 am to 5 pm, Tuesday thru Saturday. Until then, we are only a phone call or email message away from assisting you if you need any supplies or have a question before our opening date, so don’t be shy, we’re here almost daily getting ready!

 

Terrarium Night @ Wild Winds Station, Tues. March 5th, 5:30 – 8 pm
A collaborative effort by Madras Garden Depot & Wild Winds Station in Madras

Terrarium Night is coming soon!

Join us for an evening of brews, plants, and creativity at Wild Winds Station in Madras, on Tues. March 5th from 5:30-8 pm.
This will be fun “springy” indoor project for these frigid days..The terrarium we’ll make in the class is a classic ‘cloche’ style (similar to the photo below R). Tiny plants easily fit inside the glass enclosure which provides a tropical atmosphere for these plants. The other materials include terrarium soil mix, moss, stones and sand.
*Feel free to bring small shells, crystals, pretty stones and small figurines (even broken ones!) as you can set them in the soil and they really personalize your creation.

The price includes: 3 healthy plants, decorative stones & sand, special terrarium potting mix, a lovely vintage-style glass terrarium with base & cover, as well as complimentary finger food from Wild Winds. Beverages are No Host, but special samples of craft brews will be available for this class!

Cost $45 per participant. There is limited space so please sign up & pre-pay early. You can reserve by contacting us by email: info@madrasgarden.com or by phone: 541.475.2068… We will get back to you soon! *Yes, this is a kid friendly event for age 12 +
