In-person and Virtual Meeting

Join us at our new meeting location or from home! (see below for details)

Speaker: Joyce Hostyn

Presentation: Little Forests Kingston…Big Plans

Nature Canada recently presented the Conservation Partner of the Year award to Little Forests Kingston. We’ve invited Joyce to share her vision of growth for the Little Forests project.

Flower Parades

At the May and June meetings, you will have the opportunity to “show off”: if you have a flower in your garden that you would like to show all of us, please cut it and place it in a little vase, and bring it to the meeting. There will be no judging as in years past, but we do have a participation prize for all members who bring at least one flower at the May meeting. 

Because there is no judging, we cannot call this a “flower show”, so we thought of a parade: we can line up all our vases as if in line for a parade!

In June, to follow the suggestion from the folks who planned the Year of the Garden, we would like to see red flowers, but again, the parade can be multi-coloured… because we love all flowers!

A little tip: if you need a small vase, there are quite a few at Value Village.
