May 2016 General Meeting

Just to remind you of our General Meeting this coming Monday, May 9, 2016 at 7.30 at the Churchill Community Centre.

Our speaker for the evening will be Koidu Sulev, a representative of Richter’s Herbs, who will discuss with us the benefits of herbs, both culinary and medicinal – great natural alternatives.

The Society Library table will be set up as usual so you can bring back and check out books. We will have a lot of books on herb gardening and herb uses (cooking) and I will be bringing several. Should you wish to take out a particular book click on the Society Library page on the website to see what is available – e-mail me the title and the number in the left hand margin and I will bring it on Monday.

In order to celebrate GardenOntario Week in 2016 we have set up a Garden Tour with 5 gardens ending with tea served in the last garden – cost will be 15.00 per person. We will have tickets available for sale at the meeting.

We will also have 2 flats of the Kelsae Sweet Spanish Onions from Lakeview Gardens in Lefroy for sale for the contest at the Fall Flower and Vegetable Show in September – if you exhibit the largest onion you will win a Gift Certificate for $50.00 and receive the onion award. A pack will cost you $1.50 – for the best result the onions should be planted now.
