Kathryn McHolm's Garden, 4749 County Rd. 2, Port Hope (Village of Welcome)
It's been over 30 years since this show began (started in downtown Port Hope's Bric-A-Brac Shack). The ambience of the countryside location lends itself to fully experiencing this harvest.
Friday night (7pm - 9pm) a candlelit pathway greets visitors and leads to the harvest of creative gifts - pottery, beeswax candles, soap, needle arts, tinwork, jewellery, artwork, vintage ornaments, delectable goodies and more.
On Sat. and Sun the Gathering of the Greens happens as well - boughs and berries, dried materials for all your decorating needs, wreaths, topiaries and swags (orders also taken)....or you can make your own wreath.
Sat. and Sun. hours - 10am -4pm
