Next meeting, Wednesday, November 19th, 7:00, Astorino's Hall...

This is a reminder that we will be having a GGC meeting on Wednesday.

Our speaker will be one of our Garden Club members, Dana Cromie. His presentation is entitled "High Maintenance: The Training, the Joy, and the Lessons of a Plantaholic"...

Dana is a lifelong artist and gardener. He is currently a Friend of the UBC Botanical Garden, where he is head of the volunteer garden guides and assists in the buying of plants for the Shop in the Garden. He was Artist-in-Residence at the UBC Botanical Garden for 2012–2014, and during that time had a 3-month solo exhibit at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Dana's botanical drawings and watercolours were included in the group show Growing in Sight at Emily Carr University in July 2014.

Also, this will be our last meeting for 2014. We won't have a December meeting (too close to Xmas).
So we would really like folks to renew their membership for the 2015 year at our November meeting, if at all possible. Your $20 yearly membership fee helps us to pay for excellent speakers and gets you entry to all our GGC meetings and events through the year and a discount at Figaro's, Magnet, and other garden supply stores in town.

Meetings for 2015! Second Thursdays!

The hall at Astorino's isn't available for us on our proposed days for 2015 ...
