Last year our friends Brian and Susan Person lost their daughter Maya on 
November 7th . Maya was an amazing, compassionate young woman that lived every day to the fullest. In her memory, her Mom and Dad have created Maya's Day. It was Maya's wish to spend this Christmas with Family and Friends giving back to those in need at Christmas. To honour Maya's wish Brian and Susan are encouraging everyone to be part of Maya's Day. On Saturday December 16th, please volunteer or donate to a charitable organization in your community. Some special charities have been highlighted in conjunction with Maya's Day are:

 

Feed My Lambs Street Mission Inc.
Kildonan United Church - 187 Kilbride Ave - West Kildonan 
Christmas Cheer Board - 250-1395 Ellice Avenue 
Siloam Mission - 300 Princess 
Winnipeg Harvest - 1085 Winnipeg Avenue 
Lighthouse Mission - 669 Main Street

At Jensen Nursery we will be celebrating Maya’s Day this coming weekend.  On Saturday December 16, 2017 we will be hosting a one hour Christmas Concert from 11 am to 12pm.  Please take time out of your busy day to relax and reflect on our loved ones that are with us and the ones that are not.  We will be taking donations for Siloam Mission.  We will also be donating 10% of our Sales from Saturday and Sunday.

Our condolences to Brian and Susan. May you always hold Maya's Spirit and your memories of her close to your heart.
The Jensen Family and staff.

2 Weeks of Christmas!

fresh centerpiece, jensen nursery
Christmas is coming fast this year, and as I write this I see some snow outside. Finally…all our gardens need it!
 
Come in soon to pick out your Christmas tree if you haven’t already. Our stock is getting low Remember our free delivery.
 
AND…
 
Every year we have donated to Pennies from Heaven. For every Christmas tree we sell we give $2 and for every poinsettia we give $1. It is now called “Miracle on Mountain” because we don’t have pennies anymore. The money raised helps the Christmas Cheer Board.
 
AND…
 
We are collecting food for Winnipeg Harvest. The bins are right at our front door. They have told us that they especially need baby formula. 
 
We are here until December 21 st. We have fresh wreaths, Christmas trees, poinsettias and giftware. We can make a custom centrepiece for your holiday table as well.
 
Glaedelig Jul,
Jennifer

Kid's Gardening by Arlene Wheeler

Kids’ Gardening
When I’m not enjoying life at Jensens, I’m enjoying teaching kids gardening. As a Garden Coordinator for Winnipeg Harvest, I have been fortunate to be able to attend many classrooms, daycares, churches and other places the past couple of years to teach the ‘Blue Box Gardens’ program (planting corn, beans and squash in a blue recycling bin), a new initiative under the Kids Who Care program. Using the ‘Three Sisters Garden’ as a teaching method, the connection between the land and the community is exemplified. It is a very symbolic garden consisting of Corn, the oldest sister, standing tall in the centre, providing support; Squash, the middle sister growing over the mound, protecting her sisters from weeds and keeping the soil cool and moist with her large leaves and Beans, the youngest sister climbing through the squash and then up the corn to bind all together. Each of the sisters brings and takes a different nutrient from the soil. All the planting is done in a blue recycling box. The program teaches basic container gardening and what plants need to grow. Containers can be easily moved to a sunny spot in the yard or taken with you if you are moving to a different place. You would be amazed at the vegetables that can be grown in a container. At Winnipeg Harvest we have onions, corn, beans, squash, cauliflower, cabbage and many other vegetables growing both in blue recycling bins and raised beds.
Gardening teaches so much to both children and adults alike. Gardening teaches patience, respect of property, a greater respect of all living and growing things and it gives a great sense of pride. Gardening is great for the soul. My friend, Kevin Twomey from T&T Seeds and I were speaking about this a few days ago. Kevin says gardening time is ‘thinking time’, and he’s absolutely right. It’s a peaceful place where we can work on our own, collect our own thoughts, create beauty, grow some vegetables and forget about all the problems of the world. One of the best places to connect with children is in the garden. A garden can be a magical place of mystery and wonder and this leads to knowledge. Children will blossom right along with the flowers when they are included in ongoing garden projects. Sign up today for one of our Saturday Family Day gardening classes at Winnipeg Harvest. Bring the family for half hour to an hour session. If you are unable to come down on a Saturday and you are part of a daycare, church group or any other group or club and would like me to come out to teach our program, call Winnpeg Harvest and we’ll arrange a time. We’ll have some fun and you will soon see what can be grown in a container! There is no charge for any of our programs!

Riddle for kids – Why do potatoes make good detectives?????
