The April 8 Montville Market is thrilled to welcome Karen and Owen, from Earth Song Enterprises in Maleny, to join the other 'Makers and Growers' under the figs trees of Memorial Close, with their abundant array of seedlings primed, ready and eager for planting.
For many years, Karen and Owen have been passionate gardeners, cultivating their own backyard oasis and sharing their love for plants with their local community.
So when the opportunity arose to take on the seedling stall at Witta Market, they jumped at the chance to turn their hobby into a thriving business. This has now extended to the Mapleton and Montville markets, which run consecutively on Saturdays throughout the month on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Their seedlings are 100% GMO-free, sun-hardened for ease of planting, seasonal and suited to our local climate
After a scrumptious buckwheat pancake with seasonal fruit and pure maple syrup, with either a pot of loose leaf tea or barista-made coffee served on the wide sunny deck of our historic hall, customers can head over to Karen and Owen to mix and match exactly what individual seedlings they want to plan.
There is no minimum purchase amount and Karen and Owen are on hand to share their tips and advice with customers, ensuring they have the knowledge they need to make their gardens flourish.
Most of their products are compostable and any plastic used is recycled, in keeping with their commitment to sustainability, quality and community involvement. Be sure to stop by their stall and visit their website: earthsongenterprises.com.
To mark this as the Easter Market, there will be a free Easter egg hunt for children 12 years and under at 11am on the green beside the hall.
Montville Market is at the Montville Village Hall and surrounds, Memorial Close, Montville, and is wheelchair accessible. Starting at 7.30am until midday, but come early if you like pancakes to avoid disappointment! Stall enquiries via the Montville Market Facebook page.
