May 14th speaker is David Tarrant!

Join us for our meeting on May 14, when our speaker will be well-known Canadian television personality and garden expert, David Tarrant.
For 17 years David was host of CBC’s very popular national gardening program Canadian Gardener.
He has written articles for many horticultural publications; he has written four books and contributed to three others. His 1989 book, A Year in Your Garden, introduced many a novice to the principles of good gardening practice and has become a Canadian classic.
A highly respected horticultural expert, David is in demand locally and internationally as a public speaker, and has been involved in many special community projects in Vancouver. He has led 36 overseas garden tours, and continues to do so.
He is a mentor to thousands of Canadian gardeners, and is now happily enjoying his garden and retirement in Mexico. We are very fortunate that he has agreed to come and speak to our club during a brief return visit to Vancouver.

David will give us a tour of the beautiful gardens of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, including his own spectacular one.
Our meeting will be at 1739 Venables (the former Astorino's Hall), as usual, at 7:00 p.m. Yearly membership is $20 or you can pay $4 for a one-time drop-in.
Hope to see you there!
