Jaramillo Gardeners Trip to Finca Tangara, Palmira
January 18, 2017, Wednesday 10 am.

$5 donation (benefits the Library) per person for informative tour and consulting by Peter Sterling.
Met up at San Francisco Plaza to car pool 9:45 am sharp

Join us for a trip to Peter Sterling's beautiful farm - citrus, coffee, and native plant nursery, overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Palmira, Panama. The garden club went here a couple years ago and it remains one of our most popular trips ever!

Plants - trees, shrubs, fruiting, flowers, etc will be for sale - all proceeds benefit the Boquete Library.

Met up at San Francisco Plaza to car pool 9:45 am sharp. Bring small bills for the donation and to purchase plants. Wear long pants and closed shoes or you will be bug lunch! FYI - there is mud on farms...

 

Directions if not carpooling: Finca Tangara is about 6.5 kilometers from Alto Boquete, Plaza San Francisco. 
Turn right at Plaza San Francisco onto Palmira road; go straight and continue through Palmira Centro (past the Jungla). 
Keep going past the 
Hacienda Esmeralda dairy and beneficio (on the left). 
Our driveway is the first left after the beneficio. 
There is a small roofed bus stop just before our drive.
The sign is before the bus stop but hard to see.
Come down the drive past the caretaker’s house 200m to the main house.

Next week! Wednesday.

If you can, please bring a toy donation for kids ages 3 to 5 yrs, to the garden trip on Wednesday January 18, 2017.
(Simple toys from the dollar store, coloring books, small balls, etc.)

Some generous expats and locals have organized a pinata for the kids at Minsa, the health service, next to Romero Grocery on Thursday. So I will collect any donations and get them to the event.

Children and moms start lining up for health care at 6 am, doctors arrive at 9 to 11 am and later. A long day for little kids and we are trying to brighten their day, with small toys. Life continues after Christmas.

Wednesday January 18, 2017, trip to Peter Sterling's Finca in Palmira Panama. Don't forget. Meet at San Francisco Plaza 945 am.
