Lois Cooper | Gravenhurst Horticultural Society P.R.

GRAVENHURST — The Gravenhurst Horticultural Society board is working hard to bring the Society an interesting renewal in 2018.

Growing with Gravenhurst

Meetings will now begin at 7 p.m. at the Seniors Centre under a new rental contract.

Members can also look forward to using the grow room.

One new thing to look forward to in 2018 is Gardening Together on Wednesday once a month (the day after the general meetings) at the Main Street gardens.

We are also hosting the District 18 Fall Workshop and have an exciting speaker on a new topic lined up along with a fantastic hands-on workshop.

Also new this year is the start time for meetings. It has been moved to 7 p.m. to accommodate an earlier finish which will make it easier for speakers as well as members.

The first general meeting of 2018 takes place on March 20 at 7 p.m. in the Gravenhurst Senior’s Centre on First Street S.

Sue Whalen will get us prepared to begin our Veggie Garden Prep. Topics include planting schedule, crop rotation and companion planting.

Your board looks forward to updating members on our exciting year ahead.

Sign up for the bus trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens near Guelph at lilac time on June 7. There will be a pick-up in Bracebridge as well as Gravenhurst.

Membership remains $10 a year with a $2 fee at each meeting to help meet the cost of renting the room and kitchen as well as tea and coffee.
