Planning Ahead

Planning Ahead

After a seasonal hiatus, members of Chester Garden Club are reminded that the regular meetings will begin again this month. First up is the challenging Get That Tropical Look in Nova Scotia, a presentation by Susan Davis, an enthusiastic gardener from the Risley Greenhouses, on February 21st.

Gardeners will be encouraged to develop tactics leading to new displays at their Chester homes (not exactly as illustrated!). Whatever interesting ideas Susan presents, the meeting will be a great chance for optimistic gardeners to begin reving up for another gardening season. The first meeting of the season also provides a good opportunity to invite a friend to come along too, as a potential member of the club.

Unless otherwise notified, members can count on meetings being scheduled for the third Monday of each month, with a 6:30 for 7:00 pm start. The location for meetings is the St. Stephen Parish Community Centre, at the corner of  Queen and Regent Streets. A full calendar of meetings for the year will be published on the blog as soon as it is available.

Looking even farther ahead, it is time to plan for the NSAGC annual convention to be held on June 3-5, at the Atlantica Hotel and Marina, Oak Island. Early-bird registration – that is before March 31st – will entitle registrants for a draw that will see the winner reimbursed for the actual registration fee. For information on the program and to get a registration form, see the side-bar of this blog (under Events).
