The latest issue Organic Gardening and Farming Magazine is out! I have an article on page 19 called “Finding Christmas at Alouette Tree Farm”. I don’t know what happened with the layout, it looks a little off, but I greatly enjoyed writing this article! A special thanks to Janelle Hildebrand for helping me with some background on the farm. We had a lot of fun at Alouette Tree Farm, and came home with a magnificent tree! I wrote about it HERE. The article is a similar piece to the one I posted last week, so I won’t repeat it today. Do check out the links if your interested.
In the mean time it’s never to early to start thinking about what your going to do with your Christmas tree, once the season has past. Most nurseries and tree farms offer chipping services. In Port Coquitlam Art Knapps takes the trees for chipping by donation. Or you can visit the Port Coquitlam Fire Fighters, #1 Fire Hall, 1725 Broadway Street. They will be taking trees by donation for the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund.
If you are planning on disposing of your tree in your Green Bin then take a look at this video made by our local Mayor Greg Moore and Councilor Darrell Penner on how to properly dispose of your Christmas tree.
