GALLERY: New North Greenhouses kicks off the growing season

Kids workshops, bee-friendly tips, and endless rows of edible plants and fresh flowers were among the highlights during greenhouse's opening day

Snowy conditions weren't going to keep away the hundreds of locals who drove out to Airport Road this afternoon to enjoy this season's grand opening at New North Greenhouses.

Returning for a 32nd year, New North helped kick off the growing season by showcasing their wide variety of fresh plants, veggies, fruits, and other garden must-haves.

Kids had the chance to learn how to plant, grow, and maintain a mini edible garden during the Kids Can Grow Workshop earlier this morning. 

Deer Tree Apiary was on-site to offer their honey products and provide bee-friendly tips and best practices for gardeners. 

Classes, education booths, food vendors, face painting and tattoos, as well as live music from the Hollow Heads rounded out Saturday's big day at the north-end greenhouse.
