Today’s GPOD comes from Lilian Ho:
“Seven Master Gardeners from Vancouver made some Christmas ornaments for Pearson Long Term Care facility. In Canada, most long term care facilities are funded by Medicare and they have certain budgets, so we brought our own containers and materials. We gathered the greens from the facility ground and our own gardens. This year somehow, there is a lack of red berries in the gardens. We made 20 Christmas ornaments in 2.5 hours. Attached are highlights of our work.”

This is a dinner table centerpiece which needs a red candle in the center.
