FOR THE NEXT 7 GENERATIONS
Join us at Mc Martin House and participate in making Perth an awesome town for the next hundred years (at least)! :)
On Saturday July 26, 2014 we toured over 7 gardens. We enjoyed the diversity of the gardens, from the small ones at Brian's and also at Joe's to the bigger ones like Andrew's and the Table's. The hosts were all helpful and glad to answer questions. The walk between places allowed folks to socialize. And last but not least, we enjoyed another great potluck! Thanks to the Table Community Food Center gardeners for hosting the potluck!
