The calendar says it's May, and the beginning of the month is certainly indicating that indeed, spring is finally here! We're still crossing our fingers though....
The planting is in full swing after a long period of just waiting for the ice and snow to melt and the ground to thaw. The plant retail section is slowing being populated with the early and hardiest cultivars, and the propagating greenhouse is full to the rafters.
Work is underway to get the gift shop set up with all of the new treasures we've found for your garden. And the Front Porch Bistro is transitioning from our early spring "greenhouse" to a relaxing spot to sit and enjoy some fresh Planet Bean Coffee.
The gardens are still soggy as all get out, so we'll have to exercise a little more patience before we can get digging. Goodness knows, the seedlings are as anxious as we are to get out there!
So, all that is underway and yes - we are open for business Monday through Sunday, 9am - 5pm.
" In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."
A HUGE thank you to all of the hardy folks that braves the ice storm and visited the Peterborough Garden Show. Weather didn't stop us from having a great time and learning lots.
See you next year - with better weather conditions, we hope!
Announcing our 2018 Sunday Concert Schedule!
Old friends and new friends - we're happy to present our Summer Concert Series again this year. What better way to relax on a Sunday afternoon than sitting in the shade of Earthbound Gardens with a scrumptious treat and a coffee (or tea) listening to talented musicians? Plan to join us for as many as you can - bring a chair, bring a friend! (chair optional.....but we really think you should bring a friend or two!)

The Front Porch Bistro
The Front Porch Bistro will be open again this season offering fresh, hot coffee and loads of treats to tempt you. Enjoy sitting in the bistro overlooking the garden, or relax at one of our outdoor tables and listen to the birds.
A new addition to the Bistro is our Keureg Coffee Maker - NO WAIT! We are using refillable pods , filled with our very popular Planet Bean Coffee, and experimenting with some of the 100% compostable pods. It's important to us that we continue to offer environmentally responsible options while at the same time offering the best coffee available.
