January Meeting featuring Marion Jarvie

Jan 13, 2019 - 1:30pm - 4:00pm

Marion's talk will start at 1:30

Members Showcase: Favourite Books

  • Please bring one or two books to show the members and tell them why you find it helpful (not more than 5 minutes).
  • We will put the books on a table after the talks so members can look at them.

Anyone in attendance who is not yet a member can enter a draw for a free membership. Gabriela Costea, owner of the Internet seed business called BotanyCa, has generously donated this membership asking that it "be offered to a new person expressing interest in rock gardening and/or starting to grow plants from seeds."

Laura Grant says "I have seeds of Monkey puzzle trees (Araucaria araucana) to share with anyone interested". She'll bring them to the meeting.

Pick up your Seedex order.
