Picton Fair celebrates its 185th and we’re excited to be back!

We are planning a special display to commemorate our 185th. This display will feature antiques from farm days gone by. We are inviting smaller local farmers, wineries and beekeepers to demonstrate that agriculture is alive and well in the county. We would also like to invite people who grow flowers whether they are for commercial purposes or for personal enjoyment.

We would like to add floral displays (planters or cut flowers) to create a WOW! factor. All planters would be labeled with the owner’s name and the organisation (we want to promote this) they belong to. They would be returned after the Fair. If getting them to the Fair is an issue, they could be picked up.

The Fair is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 9th, 10th and 11th of September. The setup will be on the 7th and 8th of September.

Let’s make our 185th Fair one to remember!

Millennium Lookout Pollinator Garden

This is the first if 4 pollinator gardens planted in the County. All four were coordinated with the help of the PEC Horticultural Society. 

These pictures are of the garden at the Millennium Lookout. This garden was funded by a Community Foundation grant.

Cody and Evelyn (staff) helped with this project. 

The garden contains 4 shrubs and 15 species of native plants. It will be maintained by Garden PEC

(formerly PEC Horticultural Society).

We’re having a plant and seedling sale during the Wellington Community Market in the Wellington United Church parking lot.

We need lots of plants/seedlings for this sale.

If you have plants that need dividing or plants that have self-sown in your garden, please consider potting them up for the sale.
If you have extra seedlings please donate them to the plant sale.
We will also accept house plants if you have them!!
Some good plants (just to name a few) to donate are:
Hostas, peonies, irises, sedums, herbs (chives, thyme, interesting mints, oregano).
Extra seedlings of tomatoes, peppers or herbs and flowers are great!
Please do not share invasive plants like lily of the valley, bugleweed or day lilies.
