Master Gardeners Coastal Gardening & Fall Bulb Sale
On Saturday, September 20th, the Lincoln County Master Gardener Association will be offering fall bulbs for sale as part of Bonne Santé wellness day at the 60+ Activity Center in Newport. The sale will include unique and specially selected bulbs for coastal gardens at very reasonable prices, so everyone can afford to have beautiful blooms next spring!
In addition, OSU Master Gardeners will be on hand to offer their skills, knowledge, and handy tips to anyone wishing to learn more about coastal gardening and the art and science of growing and caring for plants.
Besides the obvious benefits of creating beauty in our lives, gardening just makes us feel good. By actively connecting with nature, we realign ourselves in a fundamental way that improves our health, both physically and emotionally. In fact, studies have shown that working in the dirt actually changes our brain chemistry, in a good way. The natural bacteria in soil releases serotonin, which can elevate your mood, relieve stress, and even improve cognitive function.
So, all things being equal at the changing of the season, we hope you’ll join us for a great time learning more ways to take better care of yourself and this tiny blue planet we call home. Bonne Santé wellness day runs from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Newport 60+ Activity Center located at 20 SE 2nd Street, between City Hall and Walgreens. Admission to this event is free. For more information, call (541) 265-9617.
