From Jen Forrest. I am pleased to report that garden soil is now hiding under the ugly blue tarp at 375 Chemainus Road. Garden Club Members are welcome to help themselves for potting plants for the plant sale. There is a shovel in the vicinity but please bring your own buckets. A limited number of pots are available. We can use more gallon or 2gallon pots if anyone would like to drop off extras.
Members who have not renewed for 2017 are now past due and membership name tags have been removed.
In order to not miss the Linda Gilkeson talk at the April meeting, memberships can be renewed at the door for $15.00, otherwise a $5.00 visitor fee will be required.
The Ladysmith Saltair Garden Club will meet on Thursday, March 16th in the lower meeting room of Frank Jameson Community Centre, 810 6th Ave., Ladysmith
In her later career she worked six and a half years for Raingrow, an organic fertilizer company out of Oliver, BC. Karen’s job was theSales and Training Representative during which she covered all across BC, Washington State, Oregon & their garden centres. Her knowledge of soil science and the interaction with a variety of organic fertilizers stood her in good stead with the garden shops and communities during her many travelling lectures. Karen fully completed the Master Gardener course at Malaspina College in 2000 along with a few years of volunteering with the Vancouver Island Master Gardeners.
