The Garden Club meeting in January will be a slide show of local Quadra Island gardens. What a pick-me up it is for the beginning of 2015: to showcase the beauty of our local landscape. Club members have photographed favourite scenes in their gardens, at the peak of summer, to share with the local gardening community. Don Mottershead, leader of the Q I Photo Club, has developed an hour long slide show as a result of these submitted photos. When it is gray outside, we couldn’t ask for a better time than to enjoy what our neighbours create in their gardens during the green season. The photographers will be asked to say a few words about their gardens. Come out and enjoy.
Join us on Monday January 12th 7pm at the Community Centre for an interesting evening. The Club meets on the second Monday of each month except for holidays. Our large annual plant sale will be on Saturday April 18th – so mark that date on your calendars. Membership is $10 per year or $15 for the family. There is a guest speaker at each meeting as well as a plant sale table, general gardening information for the beginner to the experienced, and of course, yummy refreshments. Join us this winter and share our dreams for gardens to come.
