We’ve covered a lot of information over those 100 episodes. We’ve also had a number of guests on the show including some of our artists, naturalists, professors and gardeners!

On this episode I share a little about the beginnings of the shop up on George st. and how we’ve transformed over the years and our move down to Sherbrooke st.

We started out as a garden shop with tools, window boxes, large concrete sculptures and beautiful bronze fountains.  But as we grew we saw a need and desire to support Canadian artists. We have gradually added close to 100 Canadian artist works to our selection at the shop. In addition we added all of the bird feeders and  bird food as well.

Past episodes are covered in this blog and are also uploaded to our YouTube channel. 

Episodes are generally less than 3 minutes long. Shows air on CHEX TV bi-weekly on Fridays and beginning soon during the noon hour and the new morning show! I hope you’ll tune in!
