Eat local, buy local, support White Rock fire victims

In response to Sunday’s White Rock fire that left  more than 100 people homeless, Art’s Nursery is shifting their focus from its Blooms & Bling event to host Flowers, Friends & Family, a fundraising event to help the victims of the fire.

Art’s Nursery & Garden Centre at 8940 192 St. will open its doors to the public on May 18 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. to host an evening of food and wine with an opportunity to shop in the garden with Art’s resident horticulturist experts as your guides.

Twenty per cent of all sales at the event on May 18 will be donated to help the victims of the White Rock fire.

Local horticulturalist, blogger and radio host Shelley Levis, of Sow & Dipity, and Chef John D. Walls will demonstrate garden-to-table recipes and show you how to do it yourself.

Art’s Nursery will also accept donations of clothing to help those who lost their homes to the fire. You can drop off items at Art’s Nursery & Garden Centre any time between 9 a.m. and  – 5 p.m.

Blooms & Bling ticket holders: Contact Art’s Nursery to receive a full refund or to donate the cost of the ticket to the White Rock fire relief.
