Joining us for our first meeting of the New Year will be Bonnie Moore, owner and operator of Woodland North 62 Lavender Farm. Bonnie will tell us about growing and using lavender in all its wonderfully aromatic states. We will also make a take-home treat to enjoy!
We will be joined by Lezlie Miller a certified judge with the Ontario Horticultural Association. Lezlie will guide us through the steps of showing and (hopefully) winning at an adjudicated Flower Show.
Back by popular demand - a Plant & Seed Swap!!
Getting ready for spring and summer - to do this we need to make sure our lawnmower is in tip-top condition! To help us with this is Alan Sukha, a man who knows quite a bit about engines!
Our annual Plant Sale! To be held at Eastside Community Baptist Church, 68 Rollins Drive, Belleville (corner of Rollins and Victoria)
9 a.m. to 12 noon
We welcome, for the first time, our new sponsor, Blue Frog Water Gardens, who will inspire us to incorporate water features in our outdoor spaces.
CHANGE OF LOCATION
We will be meeting at Eastside Community Baptist Church (not the Montrose Inn) for our Summer Flower Show & Strawberry Social. And maybe a few surprises thrown in just for fun!
No meetings these months. You've worked hard and long to get your garden in top shape, so go out and relax and enjoy!
Anne Barber owner of our sponsor Barber's Flowers in Belleville, will be with us to demonstrate how to make the most of arrangements made from flowers from our own gardens.
Our guest speaker this month will be Lori and Lorraine from Thyme Again Gardens, Carrying Place. Lori and Lorraine operate a thriving organic farm as well as a successful bed & breakfast.
This is our much anticipated pot luck dinner and induction of our new Executive.
We will also have Kyle Blaney a well-known presenter, Canadian explorer and birdwatcher. Kyle uses his photographs to show us the birds that may show up at our feeders in the coming months and will pair that with their songs.
Enjoy time with your family and friends, bake, cook, travel, take care of one another! See you in February.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa
