Catch up on outdoor happenings at market

Spring into action this Saturday at Clover Valley Farmers’ Market. All the plants you need to complete your garden plan are available, together with experts who can answer all your gardening questions.
And it’s the right time of year to find out what is happening in this beautiful, natural environment we are surrounded with.
The Rainy Lake Conservancy, a local non-profit group dedicated to preserving the natural heritage of Rainy Lake, will share a booth with the Rainy River Valley Field Naturalists at this Saturday’s farmers’ market.
Here, you can find out about healthy lakeshore living, volunteer for nature activities, and hear of upcoming special events.
Visit with members of these two groups, learn about their organizations, and consider joining them in some of their worthwhile and entertaining events.
Both groups are involved in a number of interesting initiatives, like the RRVFN’s upcoming dragonfly symposium in mid-July, the “Bog-Walk,” and monthly field trips.
Wildlife and landscape prints, reminiscent of the surroundings we live in, are available at the farmers’ market each week from Bob’s Shop.
Bob MacDonald can provide framing for virtually every artwork or collectible. He has a truly gifted eye for choosing appropriate, matching colours to enhance your project.
The winner of the free draw last Saturday was Mickey McKinnon of Devlin. Nothwest Nursery provided the prize of strawberries, asparagus, and rhubarb.
