 MAY 2018

The mini plant sale at our General Meeting on Monday, April 30th was a huge success! Members brought in a wide variety of plants, herbs and veggies for us to purchase and the Seaside Centre was ‘a buzz’ with excitement. Looks like we ALL can’t wait to plant our precious little items and look forward to those longer, warmer days to see everything grow. The next General Meeting will be on Monday, May 28 with guest speaker Peter Light talking about Permaculture and Invasive Species. Hope to see you there!
