Send your holiday greetings digitally
Let’s admit it; the holidays are difficult for trees (except for the ones grown specifically to be harvested for tree trimming). With that in mind, the Civic Garden Center is teaming up with local videographers of Numediacy to offer video portraits and media packages in order to reduce the use of paper. Also, it doesn’t hurt that you’ll be one of the few people you know sending an awesome video greeting. On the Saturdays of November 30 and December 7, J Gray and Caitlin of Numediacy will be at the CGC from 10 – 5 pm offering a range of media options from digital photos for greetings all the way to full scale video portrait greetings that can be sent to friends online. Photos and videos will be taken in our beautiful wintery gardens or inside depending on weather. Just bring the ones you love, holiday cheer, and hopefully a few chunky sweaters with reindeer on them (your Nana didn’t knit those for nothing!)
Three media packages will be offered - all sent to you digitally within a week after the session:
Social Media Package
($20) – a short photo session will result in several photos formatted for simple printing or sending online. No videos included.
($30) – have a video portrait made as an individual or group. The video will be edited and sent to you so that you can email it or post it online.
Social Media Package Deluxe
($40) – you will receive a video greeting along with still images of the Social Media Package, allowing you to send photo and video greetings to those you love for the holidays.

Stop by on Saturday November 30 or December 7 to take part in a new holiday tradition with the Civic Garden Center and Numediacy.
It's a tradition! The potters from the Clay Alliance will, once again, be displaying their wares for sale in the CGC Lobby. There will be beautiful hand thrown and hand built cups, plates, platters, bowls and whimsies. The potters start rolling in on November 11th and will have their pots available (while they last) until December 20th.
Great gifts abound at the CGC – check out the Corner Shop while you’re in the lobby!
