Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever….

This Saturday is “THE Saturday” at Gossett Brothers Nursery. Besides the Farmers Market, Gossett Brothers is privileged to once again host the annual Mothers Day weekend fundraiser for the Lewisboro Garden Club. If their was ever a time to come in and get your garden questions answered, this would be it. On Saturday all the members of the Lewisboro Garden club will be working with the Gossett staff to help you choose the best annual, perennial, shrub or tree. Its a once a year event that is not to be missed.
Traditionally, this is one of the busiest weekends of the summer season and all week long we has been receiving deliveries. The Nursery is stocked to the gills with a great selection of plants. So whatever you are looking for, come on in this Saturday and browse every nook and cranny of the Nursery with the members of the Lewisboro Garden Club to find some of the best of natures offerings.
The Lewisboro Garden club is also sponsoring a bake sale on Saturday. Homemade pies, cakes, cookies and other tempting treats will be on sale. One of the great services that the Lewisboro Garden Club provides to the community is the “Golden Roads” program.  This program, which has been a great success for the past 4 years, encourages homeowners and businesses to line their properties with daffodils. The Garden Club coordinates mass plantings of daffodils along public roadways and this year they will plant thousands of daffodils in front of the stone wall along Elmwood Road at Onatru Farm, Lewisboro Hamlet. You can help support the Golden Roads program, and help beatify our town roads. Just ask any of the Lewisboro Garden Club folks

Remember, candy is dandy, but Plants have zero calories! So come and find the perfect plant for Mom and bring her home some of the best organic and freshest food in Lewisboro.
But wait there is more!! This weekend is also the annual bee pickup weekend! Guy Hodges, our resident bee-keeper will be getting his annual delivery of bees. Several thousand bees will be visiting Gossett Brothers Nursery this Saturday. Guy will be keeping all his buzzing friends way in the back of the Gossett property, so no need to get nervous if you’re bee shy. If you are coming to pick up your bees on Saturday, follow the signs to the back of the Gossett property and you will find Guy and your bees waiting for you.

The annuals have arrived, the herbs and vegetables are out, and everywhere you turn you are greeted with color and variety that shows the graceful and endless beauty of nature.  We are so lucky to have an local fundraiser like the Lewisboro Garden Club come to the Nursery, and to have dedicated farmers who travel hours to bring you the best in farm-freash food. We hope you enjoy your time at the Gossett’s Farm Market here at Gossett’s Brothers Nursery as much as we enjoy bringing the best of nature to you. On this weekend we ask everyone to have a little patience and to follow the directions of the folks helping you to park so everyone can enjoy their time at the Nursery.
One last thought. Thinking about renewable energy? Ever wonder how Solar panels work and if it’s worth getting your house “off the grid” and suppling your own electricity while selling the excess power back to your local electric provider? Well on Saturday, May 22nd, Gossett Brothers Nursery will have someone at the Farmers market to talk to you about that. Check out the Gossett Web page or Gossett Facebook page during the week for more information.
Happy Mothers Day!!!!

The Katonah Green Chef Demonstration Series runs at Gossetts Farm Market every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m

What is holistic health counseling? Holistic health counseling treats each person as the individual that they are. What works for one person may not work for another.

Lisa Miller WellnessLisa works with the concept of primary foods and secondary foods. Primary foods are the things in your life: exercise, relationships, career and spirituality. Secondary foods are the foods you eat. You can eat the healthiest, cleanest diet in the world, but if you’re miserable in your relationship or unfulfilled in your career you will not be healthy.

Being healthy doesn’t take as much time as you make think. It actually gives you more time and energy. How? By eating well and leading a balanced life you will gain energy, decrease stress, think more clearly, rev up your metabolism, feel more confident and find time to do the things you love. You’ll feel amazing! Click on the Wellness logo above to see Lisa Millers website.
