What we do “out and about” in the community!
March 2, 2020 General Mtg. – Keynote Suzanne Hanna – Ladybugs!
February 3, 2020 General Mtg – Keynote Andrea Aubertin. Topic: Houseplants!
My name is Andrea Aubertin, I grew up in Sault Ste Marie and had a love for gardening from a young age. I have mostly focused on perennial gardening but have recently been interested in learning about houseplants. The presentation held a broad discussion on houseplants from the perspective of someone who is just starting to learn about houseplants. And hopefully this presentation inspired attendees to want explore this type of gardening!
Jan. 2020 General Mtg – Keynote Dr. Ben Joseph spoke about the medicinal side of cannabis including side effects and legal aspects of using cannabis. He was a fantastic presenter and had everyone engaged for two hours!
