We’re kicking off the fall networking season with a visit to the Lunan family’s Marlin Orchards & Garden Centre.
Diane and her daughter Alexandra will welcome us to their beautiful store, stocked full of household items, from flags and aprons, to kitchen gadgets and gardening accessories. And of course apples!
We’ll be inside but, fingers crossed, the warmth of the sun will still be with us, making this a perfect evening for you to come mingle with Business Sisters!
About Our Hosts
Founded by Susan's mom and Dad, Ann and Bill, this multi-generation family business has been a stalwart of the South Glengarry horticultural scene in South Glengarry since 1964. Their beautiful property is perched on a hill, overlooking the St-Lawrence. Starting as an apple growing operation, it gradually expanded with greenhouses, along with apiaries, pumpkin and gourd patches, growing into a full-service, destination Garden Centre , complete with a home décor and giftware store.
