Preliminary details. More details to come:
May 13. Douglas Lee will speak to us about the Butternut Recovery Program in Eastern Ontario. Douglas has been collecting seeds from trees that appear to be resistant to the butternut canker which has destroyed so many trees over the past decade. He has even invested in DNA testing for accuracy. Now, he is looking for landowners who may be interested in perpetuating the more resistant trees as an important continuing food source for both humans and animals.
In person meetings are suspended due to COVID-19. Gardening Kingston is hosting Zoom presentations monthly and details will be announced as they are confirmed. Check the web site or The Columbine newsletter for details.
