How does a coniferous tree get ready for the holidays?

They spruce themselves up!

Come and decorate a small tree with popcorn, cranberries, and a little sparkle while welcoming December’s holiday festivities.


Master Gardener Sarah will guide the children while they ‘Spruce-Up’ these trees to bring home to enjoy! What a nice addition this tree will be to plant in your garden Spring 2020 (or give to a friend!) 

The photo, to the right, shows the approximate tree size, it does not represent the decorations the children will be using.


Sarah van der Stam is a Kitchener Master Gardener who is passionate about volunteering and educating the community while putting her creative skills to good use. She loves creating fun and educational activities for children and adults throughout Waterloo Region at various community events. Sarah created fun children activities for a couple Seedy Saturday events.  The children loved it because she focuses on activities that appeal to them and the whole family. Her efforts are inclusive of many abilities, lifestyle choices and environmental impact.

Sarah brings 10+ years experience in Horticulture, mostly self-taught and enjoys the challenges of adapting her skills to suit the landscape or owners’ requests. Sarah has since returned to school to study Horticulture and Sustainable Landscapes.  Some of her previous experiences include: Urban Forestry-Recreating Habitats, Propagation of Native Trees with Wellington County Green Legacy and Professional Gardener, Head of Estate & Residential Properties.
