Spring must be on the way. It's that time of year again and Mike Darcy is set to host the 9th annual KXL Plant Nerd Night this Friday night and, bless his heart, he's asked the Chorus of the Goddess Flora to perform again. (He probably knows we'd just show up anyway, so he might as well invite us!)
For the uninitiated, the Chorus of the Goddess Flora is a rowdy group of plant nuts that break into horticulturally humorous lyrics semi-periodically at horticultural events here in the Portland area. If you have no idea what I'm talking about and can't imagine how this would take shape, you can get up to speed here. I've posted some of the YouTube links of past performances on Bloomtown's Facebook page.
People seem to enjoy what we do and I can say for sure that we sure do.
Oh yeah, there will be plants there too. Here's the dirt on the event details:
When: Friday, March 6, 2009. Doors open 6pm, presentations begin at 7pm
Where: Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 2000 Country Club Road/Lake Oswego (across from Lake Oswego High School)
This year's presenters are:
- Dancing Oaks Nursery
- Terra Nova Nursery
- One Green World
- Thompson’s Nursery
- Xera Plants
- Hydrangeas Plus
The event is sponsored in part by KXL, Al's Garden Center, Black Gold Soil, & Meta.
It's a free event. But be warned, if it's anything like past years, it'll be a packed house, so make sure you get there in plenty of time.
Hope to see you there!
