Welcome

We were delighted to be invited to be part of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Town and Country Garden Tour on Saturday, July 3rd. This annual garden tour raises funds for the CFUW scholarship program.

We want to thank all the people who came to the garden and we were happy to answer so many gardening questions.

Our hosts, Dave and Sharon Little, were fun-loving grandparents who had created a whimsical  children’s garden for their grand children.  Dave could be seen driving around the property on his “Flintmobile” and there were wonderful features hidden throughout the garden for the children to find and enjoy.  Master Gardeners June Crocco, Gail Walker and Master Gardeners in Training Katie Middleton and Aleksa Kaye thoroughly enjoyed their day in Dave and Sharon’s garden.

Many thanks to June Crocco and Kate Middleton for the photographs.

Due to the overwhelming interest in gardening during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had an unprecedented number of applicants. We are unable to support further new members at this time because of the changes in volunteering opportunities due to the pandemic. We not have meetings in the summer, therefore suspending our memberships until the Fall 2021.
